| | old school boutique bow instructions
Several of you wanted to know how to make my basic (old boutique) bow. Here's a quick and hopefully easy to follow tutorial.
You will want to measure and cut your ribbon to 20 inches. I do not really mark for this bow as I have made it so long I kinda know where to fold. Use your bowdabra as a guide.
I used to hold the bow by hand but I have found this mini bowdabra is amazing.
Lay your ribbon face down with the "center" pinched between the arms. Make a loop and twist at the "Center" layer between the arms.
Continue to twist and layer your ribbon. You should have 2loops and 1 tail on each side.
Fluff your bow by pulling on the loops so they fan out. Sew or tie very tightly.
Finished bow ready for center and clip
