I will try help if I can. Would love to see pics when you are done.
Thanks to everyone else for the nice comments.
Blessings to everyone!!
No, I was trying the basic one. I gave up on the twisted boutique with the templates, I can do them much faster without.

Do you mean that you pull the needle all the way through with each stitch? I usually try to keep the needle in the ribbon and scrunch it up with my fingers to make sure I like the crease before pulling the thread through. When I try to do it on the template I can get the first couple in then there isn't enough slack in the ribbon to get the needle in and out, does that make sense? If you mean to pull it all the way through, I could try that.
