Default OTT or something...

Hi ladies,

I'm so confused with the OTT bows! I'm self-taught so I really hate to buy tutorials. I've researched this for hours and hours! I was wondering, I've seen tons of things where a base bow is mentioned. When you mention a "base bow" does that go on the very bottom then spikes & the main bow or is it just spikes, base bow & then the main bow? I just don't think mine are quite OTT...any help is so very appreciated. I have a customer requesting one and I'm pulling out my hair

I think its the base bow, spikes, surround and then the bow. HTH! Try searching for "stacked bow"

Also, when you do the base bow, don't make it as perky as you would the top bow. It's meant just to lay under the spikes and give them support. I tend not to use the base bow though because I don't like the added bulk. I don't make many bows over 4 inches, so there isn't a big problem with the spikes sagging. Good luck!

A base bow would go under the spikes of your bow. You can use a basic boutique, pinwheel or tails out. If you want a super fluffy bow, I would use a twisted bow and make it as perky as possible for you OTT bow.

I have seen bows like this one referred to OTT. The base is the loopy bow like the tut from girlythings. Then you add more loops, korkers or anything even feathers to make a large bow. This is one I was playing with to see if it would work.

Does anyone else call this OTT?

Thanks so much all of you!
Yes, I have seen those as OTT with the feathers and all.

If you want free tutorials, girlythings web site has a lot and Mommy Crafts Alot has free tutorials on utube. She also has a facebook page with links to her tuts and she does a great job.

A over the top bow for me is a stacked bow (with a perky twisted bottom bow) with added feathers, crystals, tulle, and any additional fluff you can add. A stacked bow is just a stacked bow until extras are added, also mine are usually at leat 6 inches
