Default Super frustrated

I have paid for countless instructions on how to make a boutique bow and to no avail have failed miserably at being able to replicate it and make it look halfway like it should.

I am almost at my wits end with it, but don't want to give up because most of the bow designs I want to do require this type of bow.

I am willing to pay someone to help me perfect this bow, I think it would be easier if I was able to actually troubleshoot with someone else on how to correct whatever errors are coming up on my part instead of just buying the same ol' instructions only to end up back at square one.

I would be oh so grateful to anyone who is willing to take their time to help me find what I am doing wrong. I have tried several different techniques in regards to actually making this bow and it never works for me.

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP

I have just started using the sally clip, it works well on my smaller 1.5inch bows, but I can't use it to make the bigger bows it just doesn't turn out right.

I went up to Joann fabric to see if any of those ladies could use the instructions and make the bows and then show me how but none of them could do it.

Maybe I just wasn't meant to know how to make this bow

Do you stitch through the center? I don't think I can use HTML to upload pictures, But maybe I can put links here & you can cut and paste:

Here's one to show stitching:

Then I cinch it up by pulling the *dental floss* (yes, use waxed dental floss), then wrap it around at least twice, and tie it off on the back.

Here's the finished bow so you can see the cinched bow without a center:

I never had good luck with the Sally clip, personally. When I tried it, I always had a great fold, but my ribbon slipped & I lost my form if I tried to use that big clip. I do mine pinned to the arm of my couch like this:

I hope you can see the pictures. If not you can message me off board. [email protected].

Good luck!!!

I use a painting canvas with a board attatched to the back and pin mine to that, I find it really easy that way. I even have the canvas marked in one inch segments so I can measure the bows easily. I couldn't do them any other way.
