Everyone's are beautiful. I make these also, but I use fabri-tac glue instead of sewing them. I fold each piece of ribbon in half and make a crease so I know where the center is and then glue them one on top of the next in an evenly spaced starfish pattern. Then I bring each end up and glue it to the center. Do that for each layer. I think it is just as quick and sturdy but it is much easier on the fingers and is always even.
