Default Re: unhappy with bow-making template!

I also purchased the Brilliant Bowmaker, still can't get my bows to turn out correctly.. I've got the Gator Bite but would love to try the sally clip if I could find one in Australia.. Now trying to use the NBNG

The other day I purchased some bow instructions on etsy.. grrr!! waste of money, I should had just purchased the bows..

i do mine without a template, i couldn't find a good tut so i kinda did my own thing, but here's a link for a good tut. i use a 7/8" ribbon for most of mine. i use about 20-24 inches of ribbon for a good size bow. after the figure 8 i flip the end of my ribbon as i'm bringing it to the middle instead of bringing it straight over to the middle. practice, you'll do good!

Are you trying to make a twisted bow? I don't use templates because I'm a tight wad! I have learned from much trial and error how to make a twisted bow with out a template BUT my problem is that I have researched and worked on twisted for SOOOO long, that I can't make any other type of non twisted bow! YIKES! So now, I'm going to have to re-learn how to make other types!

Oh, and I don't use a gator bite or a sally clip... I have figured out a fold that works great for me! When I try and sew my centers, they look jacked up! lol. But if you can sew your bows, I would think that they would be more stable and hold together longer.
