That's cute, especially for a first.
But as Heidi said, don't squish it into a small package. It will turn into a pancake

I think it's adorable! The V's in your ribbon ends are nice and sharp!

Pretty bow. When you cut your ribbon for your surround bow make sure it is at least 1" longer than the ribbon you use for your TBB bow. When you make your surround place it facing the backside of custard bowl and spray it with Stiffen Stuff or starch and then use a hair dryer to help shape it. This will help keep its shape and your TBB or BB wont hide so much behind your surrounds. Keep practicing....the more you practice the better you will get at it. We all started somewhere and I know when I look at my first bows I want to cringe but that is what I needed to do in order to get better at this.
