Default Two tone bow help????

There is an abilites auction at our next basketball game and I would love to make some "school spirit" type bows. I have been trying to use the directions on this site for 2 tone bows and just can't get it right.

Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for getting this bow. Is it strange that I'm having so much trouble with it or is it just one you have to do over and over until you get it? I've tried it both ways given in the instructions and they just aren't turning out right.
TIA
Lesley

If you sew the two pieces together end to end to make one ribbon, you can fold it like a regular bow... that's what I usually do with things because I only have so many hands!

That and I pin things down as I go....

Great idea! I've never thought about that, makes things much easier.

Depending on the bow style I like doing the tuxedo bow then cross them or do the two loop and cross them. Depends on the age group. Also a big hit are streamers attached to a pony tail holder or a french clip.

Those look great! What do you mean the two loop?
