Default New Bows In Progress

I made these tonight with my little cardboard templates, and using the suggested size bows from a thread about lengths for twisted boutique bows.

The one bow is actually in purple shades, and I am planning to stack the polka dots with the orange and green striped ribbon.

They may not be absolutely perfect but they work for me. I'm not really sure how to sew the center of the bows so I just use ribbon or thread to tie them.

ETA-This is the tutorial I used to do them. They are supposed to be pinwheels.

When I sew I snag the bottom layer first with a small stitch, put in a second stitch in the middle and snag the bottom again for my third stitch. I keep the ribbon on the needle and then put my folds together by scrunching it down on the needle before pulling the needle/thread through and wrapping it off.

These are looking good though! Keep at it!

So you essentially make 3 "holes" in the ribbon? Do you start from the back or front or does it matter?

Either way will work, I go back to front though.

It's technically 5 "holes"
1 - Up to snag the bottom layer,
2 - Down for that small stitch
3 - Up for the center stitch
4 - Down to finish that stitch
5 - Up to snag the bottom layer and end

So that needle space between 1&2 is a fold, 3&4 is another and then 5 and the rest of the bow make the 3rd fold
