Default Funky Loop Bow

I recently tried making the Funky Loop Bow after reading a previous post about it, I wanted to try it a few months back. I would LOVE for you all to tell me what I did wrong because it totally did not look like this....

Any thoughts are so appreciated!

The bow in the picture you posted is not a funky loopy bow. It is twisted bow with marabou and fun stuff in the center. If you are trying to make a funky loopy bow I highly recommend this tutorial.

Thank you very much. However, the bow was listed as a funky bow and I was not sure of the exact name. I like the one you posted also but I am wanting to achieve the bow link I posted
Do you know what that one is called?

Well, her bows are awesome so I definitely wouldn't compare my first to hers!! But I think yours turned out pretty good!! I remember when we were all talking about that a while back and I tried it. Mine didn't turn out so well. I say practice a little more. Like I said, your bow looks good!

Thank you, I appreciate that. This was my fifth one lol. The first few were not even worth taking a photo of.
I certainly plan on practicing a lot more but I am just wondering what I did wrong. It looks like her bottom bow is different from mine. I was hoping someone would be able to see what I messed up. I do like this bow in its own. However, it was not what I was trying to achieve.

Thanks again to both of you ladies.

I just looked over it. When you were making the funky bow, is that how you started your base? I know that one it a little different so instead of adding the tulle and all, I would add my loops I think.

No I make my base bow like this...

I then add my loops inside the base bow and then add my marabou.
