Dang, girl! I could maybe do 5 an hour and that's if I don't bake! Of course, I'm novice!

I'd like a video of that. Hehe

I picture you like the cowboys doing the calf rope. They rope the calf, jump off the horse, tie around the legs and then THROW their hand up in a flash. LOL

I just sit in front of the TV with my needle and thread, cut to length and do it by hand. Sometimes I have to start over and do the bow again but I remember trying to get the style down............man I thought I was going to GO CRAZY!!!! Once you get it, it is like riding a bike. You will never forget. Good luck, pm me if you need pointers!
I am definitely going to pm you later, I can't do these for the life of me! Although I haven't tried to sew the center, maybe that would work...

I've bought templates in the past, but I think I used them once, and went back to doing them by hand. I do fold my ribbon in half before I start, to make a small crease, so I know where my center should be.

Goodness, I would give anything to be able to do these....much less do them by hand. I have a ton of templates and just can't get it. I was going to move on to the BBM next but not so sure I should. I have tried and tried and tried again with no luck! That's why I'm sticking to bottle caps for now lol!

I still have trouble getting the loops and the creasing perfect, but where I live people seem to prefer the smaller basic boutique and pinwheel bows. I aint going to argue with that. It makes my life so much easier!!

I do the figure 8 method and crease the center but I still have a hard time getting my loops even. I have only been doing them for a few days. I made one bow that turned out pretty good.
