These are the instructions that I followed when starting out with my bows. It just takes a little practise.
To make it a little easier to get the crease, don't pinch it until you have sewn up the middle. Gently pull your thread and your ribbon should pinch up itself. I hope this makes sense!

when making my creases I weave the needle through so the crease is even.

I have to admit, these/this is the EASIEST bow ever! Or maybe I'm just a "DUNCE"! In fact, it is the only bow I CAN make. Can't seem to get any of the others other than maybe the tuxedo bow.

So, as someone else said: PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE.

This is what I use and I love it. i did have to practice alot but now it is much easier. One thing I can say is don't let the ribbon slip and make to large of a loop. The skinnier you make your loops the perkier the loops are on the bow. I hope that makes since. I use my gator bite and tie off with dental floss.

I use my gator bite on this one as well...but I have a hard time getting all my loops the same size so I ended up breaking down and buying the TNT...It should be here soon..can't wait!

But those were the first instructions I ever used to. It just takes some time getting used to, and i'm sure you're stick of hearing it, but practice practice practice.

I agree about the loops needing to be skinny. When you are bringing your ribbon to the marked middle, make sure that they look like a "skinny" 8. I finally discovered this after much frustration. It makes the world of difference. And, I too, use the gator bite to tie off (I actually use the crochet thread, though). Good luck!
