Default I want perky bows!!! LOL

So what were the words of wisdom? I struggle with those bows. I have TOTT, and LAMB, but can't get them too look right. I have tried the 'cheater method'. I need to learn to make perky loops... like this? *note.. this is not MY picture, it is my inspiration* **if they happen to be your photos, your bows are beautiful**

I have a hard time with that, too! I have had better luck since the girls on here told me to make sure I am doing a 90% angle. That has really helped a lot. Also, starching has helped, too.

I have struggled with this too. What helped me the most (aside from LOTS of practice) was finally getting the ribbon lengths down. I was using too short of ribbons to make really perky bows. I had the fold down, but the ribbon was too short, once I made them longer they perked up. Somewhere on this site is a cheat sheet of lengths for ribbons, I'd look that up if you haven't already seen it.
