For your bow make sure you pull your loops to make an X in the front. The loops in the back should be straight across. When you get your crease just right then shaping will be all you will need to do and it will look right. You are getting closer! Keep trying. Mine are definitely not perfect, but here is a pic of one I made with 1.5 inch ribbon. See how the loops are making a tall, skinny X? Also, the back has the ribbon going straight across.
