Default Help - why are my twisted doing this?!?

Ok, I use the Figure 8 method. I do fairly well with smaller bows. Here are a few pics.



But, when I make them a little bigger, they get floppy - for lack of a better word. They seem to be fine until I stack and put the center knot on. Then, they look like this.....



Do I need to tie and sew tighter? Do I just need to starch - I have never starched anything? Ugg, I don't know. Help!!!! Any other advice or opinions on my bows is welcome as well. Thanks!
