i would try the pinwheel. it is a pretty easy one, and there are great free tutorials on it!

you can play with the tails to alter the look.

give it a shot!
are you ever too old to wear bows?!

Just keep practicing. I started making just clippie's and I've move onto bows. I only make them for my girls, so I don't make them as often (but you couldn't tell from my ribbon collection. lol). Look at video's, or maybe get templates. I do have TOTT's and Brilliant Bowmaker. They help a lot! The twisted boutique is the hardest. It takes practice, sometimes I feel like mine look good and sometimes I think they look like crap!! Keep practicing the one's that are bothering you. May times it's just the crease that throws the whole bow off. You will "get it", just don't give up.
