Default Re: I will be grateful for ANY advise!

I use the figure 8 method. I think know where your problem is if I could just explain it. I am horrible at explaining! After you have marked your center and made the figure eight...are your loops wide or skinny? They need to be skinny. Or at least that works best for me. The more "open" your figure eight is the wider your bow will horizontally. The more skinny the loops the taller it will be. Make any sense...?? Here is a photo of what is am trying to say LOL! HTH

Also... I dont know if you use a salon clip or not but they work great to hols everything in place while you stitch!
