Question Gator-Bite

I'm interested in getting one of these expensive little tools.
Anybody have one and do you think it's worth it? TIA!!!!

It is DEFINITELY worth it! I love my gator bite. The only thing is that you need very narrow organza ribbon to tie the bows off. I am thinking of trying something else, like dental floss or something but haven't yet.

I really like how after it is tied you can easily adjust your bows. When it is the way I like it, I do a quick sew thru the center.

Can you use embroidery floss or thread to tie it off?

Thanks

I haven't tried that yet. I have some embroidery floss at home and will give it a try.

Cool. Let me know how it works out for you. If that works then I'm probably going to go ahead and buy it today!

I looked on Ebay and nobody sells them on there... kinda weird considering usually you can find everything on ebay.

Love it! I used to use organza ribbon but it got too expensive, so now I just use dental floss. Also helps that we buy it in costco bulk so it's always around!

I love mine. Had a small problem a couple of months after I got it with the teeth not wanting to line up. I contact them and they promptly sent me a replacement. Thier shipping is super fast.
