Default Re: Favorite Way to Make a Twisted Boutique Bow

I just sit in front of the TV with my needle and thread, cut to length and do it by hand. Sometimes I have to start over and do the bow again but I remember trying to get the style I thought I was going to GO CRAZY!!!! Once you get it, it is like riding a bike. You will never forget. Good luck, pm me if you need pointers!

I fold mine by hand, which can be annoying, but I refuse to spend money on a template. I never buy instructions, I like the feeling of everything I do, being made by hand with no helkp with anything. Sure, I have to start over sometimes, but oh well.
