Default Re: Mini twisted bows - can you help?

These are my favorite bows to make. I find it harder to sew them. I use the figure 8 method, hold with a salon clip and just tie. I kind of put my thumbs on either side of the ribbon so it pulls more from the middle than the outsides (does that make sense?) and then pull tight. It is easier to pull on the loops if they are a little off too if you do not sew. I do sew through the center a few times after I have tied just to be sure it is not going to come apart. If I do several layers I sew through all of them as well! HTH!
