Default Having trouble with this.

As some of you have seen, I attempted making a loop around bow.
My main problem area is the main bow. Someone told me to work on the twist. I had been following directions on girlythingsbows.com, where it says to have a basic boutique bow for the center. I followed their instructions AND the instructions on this site for the boutique bow and this is what I came out with:



As you can see I just decided to make these into clips, but I don't understand how to make the center bow for this, or what fold to use...clearly the boutique instructions I've tried following is not the right one:

..... The following picture was my first and only attempt at the loopy surround a bow.



My bow is flat, I understand I can use starch to perk it up, but I just know it isn't the right fold...

Any tips for me?

ETA: I know the bows I posted are two different kinds of bows, the first being boutique and the other one I made a tails down bow?? I think? I'm just saying I've tried different things and I'm at a loss. I'm new at this. Be kind! LOL

Hi,

I am no expert by any stretch, but the first ones look more like pinwheels that aren't separated out to me. As for the second one, I think you want a twisted boutique to get the look you want, but I am not so good at making them yet. HTH

The first ones are pinwheels and the second one is a tails down, but you should definitely try a twisted boutique for the second bow. Like this Free HairBow Instructions: hairbow free directions, hair bow business work at home
