by hand...once you get the hang of it, then it comes natural. No time for marking..measuring... I did do all of that in the beginning.

At first I was free-handing but I hate that they came out lopsided. I bought the Tabby Templates on Ribbon Heaven and I love them. Perfect loops every time!!!! I paid $20 worth every penny!

I have the ultimate kit and use my twisted templates. But I don't know what everyone means when they say they "twist" the bow?

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!
how much ribbon do you use for a 2 and 3 in mini?

I measure and mark; then fold and sew. I am S-L-O-W; but like the way they look. I'm in AWE of you ladies that are able to churn out 20 or more in an hour. WOW, I guess I could really use some pointers!!!

I made my own templates from some thin cardboard that I use for my twisted boutique bows. I made 4 of them - 5.5", 4.5", 3.5", and 2.5". I simply took a piece of thin cardboard and measured it lengthwise to the width I wanted. I then measured the center, and cut out a long notch at the center point to put my straight pin in after I've wrapped my ribbon. I LOVE having my bows a consistent size - I was not very good at eyeballing them!!!
