I found that bow making can be pretty intense but I keep at and eventually it works it's self out.
I can't make a twisted boutique to save my life but I find ways to make bows with out them.

I know how you feel, one minute I can make one and even when I use the same length in ribbon I can recreate it! GRRR!!! Practice makes perfect -

As Joe Dirt says - Keep on, Keeping on!

What are you talking about? I see some cute bows in your shop!
BTW, I really heart how you have 'love' listed as one of your materials!

Have you tried templates. They make bow making so much easier. I made my own but you can buy them from a couple of places on here. I want to buy some but I hate to spend the money when the ones I made work really well for me. All you do is wrap the ribbon around them and tie with whatever you want to glue on a center and a clip and your done. The bows come out even and perfect evertime.

Also, keep notes! Then when you do perfect a bow YOU are in love with, you wont have to take it apart to see how much ribbon you used! LOL Yeah <---not the brightest in the crayon box!!
