Default Tabby Wabby Templates?

I am a member of RH and I was thinking of ordering the Tabby Wabby templates ( can't really afford $50 bucks right now). I was wondering if they were as good as NBNG? TIA

I like mine but I don't really like the instructions.

I LOVE RH and am a member too. It is totally worth it. Now to your question I sucked it up and bought them but as someone mentioned the instructions are hard to understand and you have to go to the grooup to get them so not as easy to get too. I tried them and could not ever get it so I stored them in a drawer and sealed that I would not be able to do the boutique bows. Then I sucked it up again after hearing so much about NBNG and OMG they are amazing. The istructions are fabulous and the slit is smaller thus easier to sew the middle. I still use the Tabby ones as I bought the small NBNG kit which just comes with 4 templ,ates so it seems the Tabby ones fit the sizes I did not get. However if I could go back I would have just bought them first. Again I LOVE RH and the ribbon is awesome just struggled with the templates.

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE RH ribbon. I have the NBNG templates with the book and then bought the TW ones because the slot is wider and I wanted to use it with my gator bite. I haven't had to use the instructions since I already have the NBNG ones. Honestly though I don't care for the Tabby ones. I had two break before I even took the plastic off. The NBNG templates are sturdier, they have the size markings on them and the instructions come with the templates

I have never even heard of RH until now. I have got to get a membership. They seem to have everything. I have the NBNG templates and also 3 templates from Look at Me Babe(L.A.M.B.). I like the L.A.M.B templates a lot because they have a wide opening to use with the gator bite. I just wish there were more sizes. I am going to have to try the Tabby Wabby ones too. I just like trying all sorts of bow making tools. Then half the time I don't use anything.

I think buying instructions can be addicting!! I have the Tabby ones and I guess I have nothing to compare it to.

I had one break as well.

I ended up using ds' hockey tape to repair it. At least I can find that one easily now!

i got the nobownogo templates and they are nice, easy to follow instructions. tabby wabby's is just a cheap but more expensive knock off of the original nobownogo templates.

I have the LAMB ones too & like them but wish there were more sizes. I need one between the smallest & the med. & the medium & the large.
