That's what my husband says. I was in tears today trying to figure it out, and he had to remind me that the GB is a TOOL it's not a substitute for talent.

I worked really hard to get my creases down on my own, so I guess this tool just gets in the way. And, honestly, the creases look good with the GB, but my loops are not 'smooth and perky everytime'!! They aren't even EVEN!

Awww..that was very sweet of him! I will probably just resell mine, but I have heard that people can use them for other types of projects and bows too! Just keep it around for a bit since you already have it. Might help ya!!

ALSO - I tried putting the needle in to hold the shape & even-ness and then I put it inot the GB then tied, I hope you get what I mean.

i bought the hair bow instructions for 20-25 dollars and it came with the gator bite. i love the gator bit because of the nice crease. but i really never used the instructions for bows. i found all the instructions online for free. the gator bite is an awesome tool though.
