What a Wonderful Day, I can finally share my Little Secret with you. Today was opening day at CHA and I was on the exhibitor side of the show this year. I introduced a Brand New Tool that I designed that is being manufactured by Zutter Innovative Products manufacturer of the #1 Binding Machine The “Bind it All“. I have been working on this tool for the last couple of years and after alot of R&D and listening to my Customers, Family and Friends I am proud to introduce you to The “Bow-it-All“! This Wonderful New Tool that will let you Create Perfect Bows Everytime in just a few simple steps!!!
I have always loved making Bows and as you all probably know, making a Bow by Hand can be time consuming and after working so hard to try to get it it Perfect it just doesn’t come out the way you want. One of the questions I get all the time in Classes and from my Friends and Family is How can I make a Bow so it looks good? In making hundreds of Bows throughout the years I was pretty good at my Bows but they still weren’t perfect, my tails would have one in the front and one in the back, my loops would want to go inside each other so I decided there had to be a better way. I developed my first prototype which you would laugh if you were to see it 🙂 and set to work. I tied and tied and tied until my fingers would get tired to develop a way to tie a Perfect Bow and eventually it finally came to me and I now call it The “C” technique. This technique is very easy to do with the “Bow it All” and it creates a Perfect Bow that cannot be untied. We will have Videos and Tutorials up on our New Website www.bowitall.com in the next few weeks that will show you step by step instructions on how to use the Bow-it-All and how to create 12 Beautiful Perfect Bows from 1/2″ to 9″.
Well as I continued to work with my prototype of the “Bow-it-All” I started to think (and let me tell you the wheels in my mind were really turning) What else could I do with this tool that no other tool does and as I twisted and tied I created a way to make Perfect Double Bows all in a few simple steps. Well of course you know that wasn’t enough and I kept on working and thinking what else can I make this tool do. Sometimes I think my family thought I was crazy 🙂 , I’m just Crafting Crazy I would tell them.. well then it came to me what else would I like to see my little tool do I want it to hold my back tie ribbon so “The Helping Hands Pegs and Clips were born”.
Well after many many phone calls and texts from Felipe, the owner of Zutter Innovative Products asking me if I was ready to show him my idea, I told him I was ready but he had to promise not to laugh at my prototype of my tool. We met and after many meetings and testing my little idea became a Reality and now we are introducing it to you!
This new tool will let you create Bows from 1/2″ all the way up to 9″, yes that’s right I did say 1/2″ and each bow comes off exactly the same size as the one you created before and the tool is so easy to use you can create a Perfect single or double bow in many different styles. The “Bow it All” will be shipping sometime in Mid April and will come with all of the tools and accessories you need plus a Pretty Pink Tote to carry your “Bow it All” with you wherever you go. I apoligize that I keep going on and on but I am sooooo excited and I hope you will Love The “Bow-it-All” as much as I have enjoyed creating it for you.
