Default Best Bow Template

Ladies what is the best bow template? I am looking mostly for a boutique style but any input on others that work well would be great. Thanks

I have the Brillant Bow Maker and NBNG both have advantages, but
i still prefer the figure 8 or free hand method. i don't think you will get the same answer from any two ladies on this board. I think it will depend you personal preference, but if I had no bow making experience I would probably go with the Brilliant Bow Maker. my 11 yr old can use it and produce awesome bows....

I can freehand them and have started bows within the last year. BUT with a 9 month old little boy who LOVES to get into things I figured maybe I could make more bows more quickly with a template.

I can't review it because it is in the mail, BUT I ordered the NBNG templates for this reason... I am 8 months pregnant and have a 17 month old and 44 month old.... My oldest decided recently that 8 is too early for bed so to get anything done I would have to be up until 11 to start!

I failed to mention that I also have a 5 year old boy. Yes I have two boys and make hairbows and girly stuff. Would love for a lightbulb to come on in my head for more boy stuff but girl stuff is whats in right now. Please let me know how you like them. Really dont want to spend the money if its not worth it. Trying my hand at woven headbands now.
