Well maybe if I would have had a little TIME I would have written my OWN tutorial LOL. I don't mind sharing with anyone how I make something. Most of us can pretty much look at a pic and figure out how to make something (sometimes lol)

yes...like just about every tut you could want is somewhere for free...and it's totally sucky to rip off someone's original work (bow, tutu, etc) and write a tutorial for it and then sell the tut...

UNLESS...some crazy tutu maker has gone out of her way to prevent every member of a certain TOTALLY AWESOME forum from purchasing her products because she doesn't want anyone to know how to make it...if THAT happens...you should definitely puzzle out how to make her items and share the knowledge with the world!! ---i did this but decided to sell the tut rather than share for free because it took me like 3 days+ to put it all together...oh and i wrote it super detailed so someone who was new to making them could make a basic tutu...



and i'm so lazy when trying to do this sometimes so i just buy it...the first night i started making bows i spent like all night searching online for tuts and vids that were free...in the end i bought my first tut on ebay and thought i would lose it during the 4 hours i waited for the writer to wake up, check her email, and send me the tut....

*point self* shut up, andrea!....*reply self* yes, ma'am!
*nod self*...totally crazy here

I bought the older version of these directions and I liked them.. I kicked my self in the butt after reading them though because I could have figured it out on my own.. just didn't give it much thought! They were well writen and there are a lot of pictures.. very easy to learn.. & major bonus they are my best selling bow!

I personally love the instructions. I love tons of pictures to show me every little thing. I believe they are very much worth the money. I don't usually get in on debates. I love free instructions. However, I don't mind supporting some of the hipgirls. I mean why not buy the instructions and help the people in the forum at the same time. I have purchased about 6 set up instructions. Maybe 8, I have been very disappointed in a couple...I don't bad mouth anyone and I don't give away the instructions. I agree it's not right to think it's okay to give or sell the instructions. Jmo...

thanks
edee

LMAO!! If I put as much effort into everything else as I do bows I'd probably have a doctorate degree, clean house, and be fit!!

OMGosh...you ladies crack me up!! I broke down and bought the instructions....I am kinda neutral on them right now....

And you guys are right...You should not re-sell or give away other's tuts....that is a kinda crappy thing to do...even if the tut sucks. I am willing to take a risk every once in a while, but some of the tuts are priced a bit much, IMHO.

Thanks to those who put in their "two cents" about the tut--here's hoping I can sell some of these bows!!!
