I completely bombed my first attempt at a loopy bow. (like this, but those aren't the instructions I used...Free Loopy Hair Bow Instructions: loopy bubble bows hairbows, free directions)
I used 3/8" grosgrain-3 different colors.
1. I ran out of one of the ribbons (9ft roll-that can't be good )
2. It didn't want to cooperate for me to 'fluff' it.
3. It looked weird against my daughter's head-too tall.
I already took it apart out of frustration. I have no idea what I did wrong
Where can I find really good (free) directions, or tips?

I didn't take a picture. I was embarassed with the result so I took it apart as fast as I could.
I used sewing thread. I'm not sure if I should have tried the clear monofilament or fishing line. I'm also thinking The loops were too big.
Thank you again! I tried again after my husband got home from work. I tried smaller loops, and it came out a little better. I didn't have any wire or floss. I will have to add those to my list to see which works better for me!
I posted a picture in the gallery if you'd like to look.
