Awe thank you! Yes you need to use larger ribbon. I use 2" and about 36" of it. Hope this helps!!

Do you bake your bows? I tried it once and it was completely flat on the back which made the loops look like they are trying to fling themselves off the clip. If you do not bake then the loops will naturally just fit the curve of the head.

Haha! No, I have never tried baking my bows. I figured with my horrible baking skills the bows would be better off no where near the kitchen.

Ever since this post I have been determined to figure this bow out, so here is what I came up with. I played around a lot & finally found something that worked. I used a 9 template (45 of 2.25 ribbon ).hand folding just was not working & twisted it. I did some with not so much twist & like them, but I liked them better with the twist. I did starch one & did not starch one & the starch one did not sit so well on the head & the unstarched one was just way to floppy, so I added very little starch to one just on the front after it was attached to the barrette & it worked perfect. I may try a 8.5" template next time because this bow is HUGE!

That's the size I usually make with the 2 1/4" ribbon only mine are upside down from the way you make them.

Haha! Yeah, he is a really good sport! I guess I need to do a post in the "you know you are bow maker when" thread and post "when your only child is a boy and he knows the difference between a tbb and a pinwheel"..... Geez I am probably scarring him for life!

I was reading through and wanted to suggest that may your trying the wrong style. The Facebook pic is a regular boutique bow. Not a twisted boutique. A super long time ago I posted some directions. Don't know if they have been purged or not though.
