Default Re: What type of bow is best (w/2 diff ribbons?) NEWBIE!

Just remember it takes time and practice. The more you make them the easier it will get

Thank you! Great advice. I keep getting the pinwheel and spike one mixed one, but you're right - that one looks really easy. And you're right about grosgrain vs. satin...!
