I believe, most of the time, 1.5 was being used for the bottom. I've seen 7/8 being used so that why I said "most of the time on the 1.5" as bottom.

I think you need to make your spikes a bit shorter as well - take my advice with a grain of salt because mine aren't perfect either.

Maybe Chantelle will come in here and tell us what to do, hers are perfect!
Thanks Jen. Except I avoid surrounds like the plague. I can kind of get it but I don't enjoy doing them so I tend to just go without.

I think the second bow is definately on the right track. Just shorten your spikes a little. Like one of the other girls said, try and keep a little gap between your surround loops. Like they say, practice makes perfect, you'll get there.

You need to make more of these! Your surrounds are perfect!

Here's a picture of my first and last layered bow! LOL They are a TON of work - and mine still doesn't look right.

I noticed in this picture, there isn't a ribbon around the bow and surrounds (in the center). I thought you were supossed to do that? Maybe not? I did some like this when I first started but they didn't look right to me without a ribbon around the bow and surrounds, so then I started putting 3/8 ribbon in the center and now each side looks too 'separate'. So now I'm stuck because both ways (on mine) don't look right to me but I don't know what I'm doing wrong! Hope that makes sense.
