I am so excited to hear this because I ordered the gator bite a few days ago.

oh stupid holiday weekend. LOL Mine shipped Wednesday but with the holiday weekend I don't know when I'll get it. Things slow down with USPS during holidays. I will keep anxiously checking the mailbox. I picked up the clips from Sally to use in the meantime.
I got a pack of the smaller clips too...they seem to hold a little tighter but won't work on the large bows.

I use upholstery thread. I also put my bow in my GB, poke the needle thru the center and then wrap and pull and wrap and pull. Those things aren't going anywhere!!!

Ok, I will probably get as excited as this if I can make perfect boutique bows. I think I might just order the Gatorbite.

I just got mine this week. Cranking out bows like a madwoman! I find that I like the embroidery thread the best as a tie-off. LOVE the gator bite!!!!!

I just ordered one....I can do my creases fairly well on my own, but it would be nice to be quicker and more consistant. We shall see.

'eh'

Either I'm doing it wrong, or this thing sucks!! My bows come out much better without using the bite. I had such high hopes for this thing.

First, I can't get the bite on without my folds slipping, and once the bite is on, my ribbon slips big time. I make sure my loops are even, and after I've tied it off, they are all funky.

And, her template is weird. I don't understand it, but when using her template, two loops are really small, and two loops are really large.

I've spent all day trying to figure this thing out!! Various sizes of ribbon, various folds. With her template, and without.

So...Anyone want a gator bite?

ME too!! I am so depressed, maybe I can do them better than I thought, I have a certain crease I use and with the GB, it alters that!!

I am going to try mine on spike and see it it can help anywhere in my bow making. If not, I will sell it. Don't be too depressed, I mean it just means we are NATURALS! LMAO
