Default Still trying to perfect this bow

I have made endless attempts at perfecting this bow, but I just can't do it. I don't know if it is something that I am doing wrong, or what but I was wondering if anyone would be willing to kind of help me a bit with this.

Here is a picture of a bow someone else made, but it is the bow style I want to try to master



Thanks so much ladies.

Send a pic of the one you did and we will try to help. I will say that this bows is all about the angle.

this one, I think, is the hardest one to get. for me, the easiest method was the butterfly fold method, like this. It still takes alot of practice though.

I am uploading a pic of one of my bows right now.

I think I might be having issues with both the angle and the crease. I am going to keep trying, but a lot of my ideas for more bows are based off of this bow.

Does anyone know if the BBM shows you how to make this bow, or helps with a better technique?

The BBM does not have that bow, she is coming out with a template for it in the Spring, I can't wait!! That is the toughest bow for me. Although, I am getting better everytime I try it. I use the hand folding method from TOTT.

Here is a picture of my latest attempt at making that bow.

I mean it doesn't look bad, but I really want to know how to make them look like the bow in the OP

TOTT are the paid instructions from The Ribbon Retreat, so ethically I cannot tell you the method. But it is the one that does not use her wooden bowmaker. It's starting to work out for me. But really, it looks like you have the basics down, just need to practice practice practice.
