If so, try making where the ribbon crosses over not quite as wide at the bottom. When I make a bow like that, it looks something like an awareness ribbon. The ends of the ribbon that will form the tails of the bow have about 4" or 5" between the ribbons at the bottom. That should help give your crease that "jacked up" look.

If you're still not successful, I would highly recommend going to and purchasing Devon's directions. They are wonderful and only $5.00! Well worth it!
Jacked up as in if the ribbon has a pattern, then the pattern is facing the oppisite way than the rest of the bow.

3rd pic is what you're looking for. At that point crease. I also sew the pony on at this point. The attach the center either flat or center. The crease is what makes or breaks the bow, that's pretty much most bows though. I also measure too so my loops are exact, I can make 25 bows and they will all be the same so measuring as you go along is important so you can recreate the bow.
Got it.
Thanks for your help.
