That looks kinda like my basic Lisa bow. Take your bow size, double it and add 1/4 inch. Fold it over and glue into a loop. Make two the same size. Put one through the other, crow crossing them. Tie or sew in the middle and wrap as desired. This one is just two layers, the bottom one looks an inch bigger. Hope that helps

I've been making this bow for over 20 years. It's a smaller no tails basic bow on top of a larger one. You just make a figure 8 but instead of making it long up and down as you would for a twisted bow, it's more horizontal and the straight part across the back doesn't end up covered by the front X. Let me see if I can attach a picture.

Thanks, real simple explanation. I found this easier to do than using one continuous piece of ribbon.

Thanks for the pic, that really helped me. I was already making this bow (duh!), but had always pulled it apart more. I just used my NBNG templates, one slighter smaller than the other, and it turned out pretty close.
