Question Upside down bow or different style?

Ok I have scoured through etsy, hg boards, tuts, EVERYTHING! And I keep coming up with 2 different ways of shaping/positioning the TBB! There is this way http://www.etsy.com/listing/60055128...s-and-hair-bow where the bottom loops come IN FRONT and then there is this way http://www.etsy.com/listing/72989713...assic-boutique where the bottom loops go BEHIND the top. So my lingering question is which way is correct??? Is it just a preference, does it depend on template used???? I am second guessing all my TBB's wondering if they are upside down now!!!

There is no right or wrong way, it's however you prefer it. When I first started making them, they were all made the second way so the first way looks "upside down" to me. I don't recall seeing them made the first way until templates were being sold with instructions. I don't use templates so I don't know if they show you both ways to make them or not. At least I assume you would be able to make them either way with templates.

Ok so there is no universal "right way"! I was really second guessing myself there for awhile! Because it seems like everyone prefers one way!

It's probably a result of however you get used to seeing it first. I think I've seen members posting photos of bows done both ways in the same post.

When I use a template, they come out the first way, when I hand tie they come out the second way! Both are cute!

mine too! i just made two different sets of instructions for the tbb. i am getting ready to post pics now. but the one i made and used a template for came out with the bottom loops comming in front of the top loops. and the one i used no template for they came in the back.

actually I made tow tbbs with each a different set of instructions via youtube. i DID NOT make the instructions. that came out wrong, sometinmes i get carried away with myself when im typing and forget to add in words

I make mine like the second picture, http://www.etsy.com/listing/78199690...f_shop_favitem

That is a link to one in my shop. I think most people do it like the first link you posted so I always feel like mine are upside down but I can't handle trying to change it now! lol
