Im just wondering what everyone uses to form their loops when making bows. Mine never seem to come out even.
Are there any inserts or formers that i can buy to make my loops uniform?

You can use PVC tubing, paper towels, tissue, whatever. I like paper towels because they give a different amount of "puff" to the loops. For large bows you can use paper towels tubes.

Good luck.

When I make bows, I just ensure that both sides are even before I pinch them together and I crunch up a ball (loosely) of plastic wrap to put in the centre of each and let it dry.

I just measure them all the same length before I pinch them together, and then form them and carefully lay them on their sides to dry.
