Default Re: how to make this bow

Instead of doing a figure 8 fold-I would do a traditional marking and folding and then you can determine how long you want your tails. For my medium size I measure 25 inches of ribbon measure in 2.5 inches and mark (that's your first tail, then 5 inch-increments for the loops, (5*4=20) then that leaves another 2.5 inches for the other tail.
Hope that helps-I never could get a twisted to look twisted with the figure now I'm all about the marking and folding LOL!
