Default Re: 2 loop pinwheel (instead of 4)

You know, that is an interesting question. I saw a very cute pair of two loop pinwheel bows on a cheer bow site and was wanting to make a pair myself.

When I made a "figure 8" with ribbon like I was going to make a boutique bow, but extended the tails out past center, and even with the loops, it seemed to at least replicate what I had seen. After that just bunched and tied the center. HTH!

I have tried and tried but mine come out looking very different. I have tried both sewing and tying. ( I can do reg. pinwheels no prob.) Am I a big putz or is there a trick to it?
