Unhappy Please Help!! I'm having the hadrest time...

I'm desperately trying the boutique bow that twist a little and I just cant seem to get it. I've tried two different (very different) instructions but to no avail. Are there easier instructions or is there some short cut to getting this bow? Thanks for your help!

the only advice I can give is to keep practicing and practicing. It will come, it just takes time. Search youtube for videos-that mihgt help. it helps me to see it in live action. Good Luck!

I've spent soooooo much $$$$ on instructions, I could have bought the actual hairbow by now.

Anyhoo, after all that, I've found the figure 8 to be the "easiest" for me. Once I've folded with method, then I use the sally clip to hold the middle then use the smaller alligator clips in the back to keep it straight. Then you are able to "angle" the front loops then gather in the middle.

Sorry don't have pics but it is from someone else's tips. Sorry, but don't remember the person that posted that little tip/tut.

HTH,

Shawn

I never understood how the bow with the simplest instructions could be the hardest, But a lot of things play into it, the width of the 8-should be narrow. Your two pc. across the back should be parallel, and the X should be almost straight up and down. Even the stitch length comes into play, keep them shorter and closer togetehr, Secure with a salon clip to crease, then pull the crease apart a little and spread it out then shape your loops the way you want them to look. I just recently bought the BBM twisted and even that takes some preatice! HTH

That bow is the most evil of them all. It was invented to make us all go crazy trying to perfect it!! Put it out of your mind for a day or two then come back to it. I am still only about 80% there and i practice loads, but I won't let it beat me lol!!!
