Hi everyone!

I am in LOVE with this ladies bows and how PERFECT they look. Her boutique bows are always so even. I cannot figure how to get mine this even.
Could you all take a look at them and see what you think? KUDOS to her and her perfectly even bows!

Here is my favorite:

Well, I see what you mean, hers are perfect. But I think yours look pretty good too. I know what you mean though. I have been working onthese for a while and its so frustrating when you see perfect ones like that. I say just keep working, it can only get better!!

Thanks! I appreciate it. I do mine all by hand. I haven't used a tool or anything. I didn't know maybe if a tool or something might make them perfect, like this.

I have the BBM snap templates and love them. They do help me a lot. But I think most of the people that have gotten this bow down just put a lot of practice time in and they do them by hand.

Wow--you make yours by hand and I think they look very pretty. I just started trying to use templates and it is still going to take some time to master and get close the lady's that you posted. Guess (hope) it will all get better with time and practice.

I also do mine by hand. Have never used a template, and just practice practice practice. I can see that the "x" that is going to form your 4 loops is not as perky as it should be. Try making that "x" a little skinnier. Does that make sense???
