Thanks in advance for any help
It is done using a template. The wave is done to only one half of the bow. The zebra layer is done the same way but about 1/2" narrower so the effect is staggered.

It takes some work, but once you get your templates for each layer perfected, it's quite easy. My avatar is the bow I am using this season for my Mitey Mite squad. It is one of my favorite bows to make.
