Hang on! Sorry I made a mistake. I looked at your bow closely once more and noticed you might have used the pinwheel fold. At least I guessed so as in the twisted boutique fold one of the tail should be in the front. Or if I am wrong and this is the twisted boutique fold, the in the picture it should be the back of your bow, not the front. If you want twisted boutique bow, then try twisted boutique fold AKA butterfly fold, as I mentioned in the photos in the other post. Am I confusing?

Thanks ladies, I will practicing with help from the links provided. I'll post another picture if/when I get the technique down. I never use stiffener, that could be part of the problem eh?
The center for that bow is gold lurex on top of 3/8 white grosgrain. I have a few basic bows I am making in cheer colors for my daughters cheerleading spirit store and their gold is a metallic.

OK, I decided to take pics of how I make these b/c I do not own any instructions (except TOTT headband) and so I don't understand the terms. Maybe someone can tell me what technique this is called.
Also, I am horrified that my fingernails look dirty. I have been painting bow holders and that is paint underneath the nail.

I was just reading this- I can't really help on the folds. I somehow figure out how to make the bows then completly switch it so my bows are the exact opposite. (left hander!) So my tails are on the opposite side.
Lynn I was thinking the same thing- I think the bow is just backwards per se- with that end tail towards the back in the pic.
