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

Definitely starch!! Starch, starch, starch! LOL It makes your life 100 times easier. The larger the bow, the heavier the ribbon, so unless you starch it, it will flop.

Also in my experience the tighter you sew the center the better the ribbon pops up and holds it shape.

ETA: You also might want to try making the X more narrow. The more narrow the X in the middle, the more curvy your bow will be. I put a picture up cause I'm not good at explaining sometimes.
