I think this was my very first tutorial attempt from a few years ago which I call the leaf tip bow. Here's the short version - First photo shows the layout of the ribbon. This one I did with 5/8" ribbon. The second is what I would call the back of the bow. (The loops are actually all the same size, but I think the smaller loops just look smaller because they are squished between the tails and the first loops on either side and are also flatter to the cutting mat than the "larger" loops.) The way I see it, the original photo has the bottom layer right side up and the top layer bottom side up.
thank you! the pics are worth 1,000 words . . . when i read "mountain switchback" - i got confused/said huh? but the pic said it all!

I have worked and worked and I just can't get this to look the same... ugh! Starting to get frustrated! And I can see this bow on her etsy shop when you posted that link, but I can't see anything else of hers when I search...know why that is?

If no one else has done it by then, I'll see if I can make up a tutorial for a 1 1/2" ribbon size like this one. Unfortunately I am away from home till the 3rd week of Feb!
