Default Need help with boutique bow please!

Hi, I am new to this and I have been trying to make the boutique bow using several tutorials listed within these forums. I am having no luck getting it to look like the boutique bow though. It just kind of looks like a regular old bow! If anyone can help me and see what I am doing wrong, I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

Lauren

Looks pretty good to me. That is the basic boutique bow. Are you wanting it to stand up some? If so, when folding the bow, make your angles more pronounced. Try turning the ribbon in a 90 degree angle. HTH.

Well it's good to know that it basically looks ok! I guess I just need to play around with the angles because I was thinking it's not standing up enough like the others I see. Thanks!

I agree that if you want it to stand up more perky then you need to make the angles more pronounced. It took me a long time to get it right. Good luck!

You're so close! You want the fronts of your loops to go perpendicular & the backs of your loops to be horizontal. I have the most luck this way: Boutique Bow Free Instructions but I pin mine to the armrest of my couch . To get the loops right, you really want to spread the tops of all 4 loops (pinned to the couch) to get an x shape. HTH!
