I crease two. Something else, in her intructions, make sure you pull with your fingers to help shape. It really helps. Get a good shape, spray starch and then bake.
thanks . . . i'm assuming i'd start at the edge of the ribbon/wing if i were following the classic bow ? or do i start on the right dot shown on page 27 - 1st pic? it's all these dots with no sewing thread showing that's driving me nuts!
lol - a pic would be worth 1,000 words!
also, i'm finding out that i can't use printed ribbon on this as the tails show the solid side
