Default Re: What template for the twisted or loopy boutique bow?

I have been on these for months now. Here's a question:

Where do you sew them? Do you sew across the straight line in the back, just through the middle to hold them in place? Do you fold them in half forwards and then sew?

I can get mine to look perfect . . . until I go to crease them. Then they all go to crud!

Thanks for any help you can provide!
