To answer your question, lay the ribbons out flat and fold holding them together. It can be tricky. That's why I use a needle at the middle sticking up then fold one side onto the needle, then the other side. I also will use a toothpick and some fabric-tac at strategic points to keep the bow together at the loops but not until It's folded just in case it needs adjusting.

Attached is a recent 3 layer.
So you don't auctally fold it into a bow?
Do you just press the ribbon onto the needle, sew it, then wrap some ribbon around the middle?
