It is hard to sew when the ribbon is thick or stiff IMO. The needle I use is SUPER long and I always sew up the bow keeping all the ribbon on the needle and then scrunch the ribbon and support the crease with my left hand (hold it by the middle all scrunched up) before I pull the needle all the way through and wrap the thread around and then tie it off. I'm so horrible at explaining things, but HTH! Really, practice, practice, practice. But you are on the right track, I think.
