Default Re: is a boutique bow I just made...

I think it looks good too! I am really having a tough time with smaller ones, too. I've been practicing and using different instructions - but they're mostly the same. Sometimes the finished product might be wearable - usually not.

I'm having trouble with creasing. I usually use a Sally's clip (I have a smaller one for the smaller bows). When I first got it, I picked it up pretty quickly and had good success. A few days went by before I could use it again, and now I can't get it back. Any creasing tips?

Oh, and I was at a Michaels on Saturday and also bought some cute clearance ribbon. DH says our daughter doesn't have enough heads to wear all these bows, but I'm loving making them (or at least practicing making them!)
Good job and good luck!
