If you don't have a bow maker then you really are missing out on the simplest way to create co-ordinating bows. It may sound a pointless piece of equipment: anyone can tie a bow, right? When you try to make a bow for a project you realise that it's not as easy as you think.
Here is a lovely little bow maker bought from eBay for less than £2.00. YES! Can you believe it? Of course there are other brands and it's an individual choice but I liked this lovely wooden one. I found this one by typing in bow maker under the 'Crafts' category. You can adjust the pegs according to the size of bow you want and it comes with instructions. I used it to make the bows for the Christmas napkins and it really is simple.
Treat yourself or a friend. This would be a nice little Christmas stocking filler for the craft enthusiast.
