Default OMG, how did I ever make bows without it?!?

My Gator Bite that is, this thing is freaking awesome! I made 10 bows in the amount of time it normally takes me to make one. I have the Sally's clips, but the Gator Bite works way better, imo. The Gator Bite clamps down tighter then the Sally's clips, so the ribbon doesn't shift, which is the problem I was having with the Sally's clips. Also, the part where you put your tie of ribbon is narrower giving you a better chance of knotting it dead center. The other thing is that I can use the elastic thread with it without the thread breaking. When I use elastic thread with the Sally's clip, the thread broke everytime. It was well worth the $15 I paid for it.

i have to agree that i love mine for the harder to crease bows (the ones where you have to fold by hand..ugh). but most bows i can do with a needle and thread just as fast as the gator bite.

the only problem i have is that i never can seem to get the elastic tight enough with it, maybe it is just me though

I love mine too! I still sew my bows and use the gator bite to help. It makes a really nice, consistent crease. I can go just as fast as sewing it regularly...maybe even faster.

now i had not thought of that trick...i will have to try it that way. i like the whole needle and thread thing on some bows but when i do it i can end up off center....this way i would have the gator to help me crease and hold
