Thumbs down Re: For those that TIE their bows...

I bought the elastic thread and I'm not too happy with it. I don't even feel like I'm pulling that tight and SNAP it breaks!

Smile Re: For those that TIE their bows...

I have found that embroidery floss works best. Especially of you are using the gator bite. However it gets alittle expensive and sometimes alot gets wasted when cutting and what not. So I tried the elastic thread, which I'm not happy about. I watched a tutorial last night of someone using sheer ribbon so I may try that.

I have tried so many different things for tying off, but have found that the Bowdabra bow wire works the best. It doesn't hurt my hands, it is very strong, and it is easy to tie off with it. It costs about $.99 at Walmart and comes in gold and silver. I can't go without it. I panic if I run out. lol

Well.. I use the fishing line.. It does wear on your hands but I find it is the best to get really nice creases for me.. I also like using the organza

Don't know if you have one, but Walgreens carries no-flavor waxed floss.

I love that! It's all I ever use.

I sew mine using upholstery thread. I sew and then I wrap it around twice or three times and then stitch through the center again. Tie a knot at the back. I have pulled and it holds. I have no tried anything else cause this seems sturdy enough for me. I mean Before a wonderful dd pulls a sewn bow apart I think they will pull it right off the clip, you know what I mean. I make bows for princesses not hulk....lol.
