{Imitation Bow Easy…

Have you seen these things? They are these nifty little devices that help the bow-challenged like myself make bows. I drew one in the KNK software and cut it out on a flexible chopping mat (they are 2 for a buck at the Swapmeet, but I’ll bet your nearest dollar store has them as well).
