You are not the only one. I can only get those you see on the pix by hand with fairly consistent results (and only 3 inch or more! LOL). The rest of the bows are a mystery to me till I got the templates.

Bingo! The flat surface allows the loops to cover the top bow nicely. I have 2 bows, same construction, but the loops are done both ways, and the end results is very different. Let me go find the pix and I will post it online.

I am glad you found the pix useful.
