I have a friend that i have tried to teach how to make this bow and even bought her all kinds of templates to learn from, she just CAN'T get it at all!

Keep up the good work girl, this looks awesome, put a covered clip on the back and a ribbon center on it and sell it!
Thanks so much Paula! All the bows in this thread are free-hand Some are larger than others (4" vs 3") but they're all from the figure 8 method.

I love your bow tho it looks great keep practicing!!
I tried the BBM on my first bow, but I really struggled with it (not saying anything against the BBM, it's a great tool!). So I decided to try freehand for these 3

You know, I really wish I could answer you. I must be doing something wrong that causes that... but I don't know what it is?
