Sure... Let me see if this works...
Do you see that my ?boutique bow? (I can't really call it that, because it looks nothing like it).... Why are my loops like that, I need them where you can see through them. AHHH!

It's kind of hard to see because of your surrounds. but it looks like you just need to really work on your angles.
When using the figure 8 method I had to practice alot before it actually looked like a boutique bow.
Just keep trying, you'll get it it just takes time. This was the hardest bow for me to learn.

Ok this is the one I just did, I can't seem to make every loop like the bottom loops, is that how the bottom loops should look? I am so confused. Is the crease ok? Thanks so much to anyone who is taking the time out to help me. I really really want to start making boutique bows. Thanks again in advance.

The crease looks good, alot better than mine in fact!
For the upper loops just keep trying to manipulate them after you've tied the center off. You should be able to move them around enough to make them look the way you'd like.
Once you get the loops to look the way you want lightly spray the bow with starch to make sure that the shape stays beautiful.
I hope I've helped some.
