Default Re: How to correctly sew the creases in a bow?

Have you tried it with needle and thread? I poke my needle in from the back (in the middle). Pull it all the way through . then I wrap the thread over the top and grab the thread from the back and slowly pull to gather the top half. Then I bring the thread up to the front again (around the bottom half) and gather the bottom half. I then wrap the tread around another time or two making it tighter each time. Then I pull it off my sally's clip and wrap it a few more times until I'm happy & tie it off. It took me a few tries but I eventually got it down. HTH
