You should have offered it for sale on here! You would have made your money back in a second!

I love my Gator Bite. I was only making bows for a few days before I bought it.... It beats out the Sally clip, and makes my bows look soooo pretty!

i dont think i know how to use the gator bite properly cuz i cannot for the life of me figure out how to make it give perfect creases!
what are you tying with? and then do you sew threw it afterwards?

(I use NBNG templates). I find sewing easier

I use embroidery floss, but just recently bought sheer ribbon. Both work well.

I used a giant clip from sally's for the longest time and finally tried out the gator bite about 6 or so months ago.

I only really use it on my large twisted bows BUT I am in love with how they turn out with it. I do not notice much difference in the other styles and it is an extra step for me so I just free hand the others. My twisteds look wonderful with the gator bite though

I quit sewing my bows too when I discoverd the Gator Bite. That was the best investment I have made it bow making tools. I do still sew pinwheel bows, but may try the suggestion above.

I'm cheap & have been making bows for years so I tried the Sally clip first. It's good & works ok but I just broke down & bought the gator bite & LAMB templates & WOW - I love it!! Such pretty creases!!! Totally worth it IMO.
