Default Backward Bows????

I'm wondering why so many people are putting their bows on backwards? It seems like more and more people don't know the front from the back? I make my bows by hand, I've never even seen a template, is it hard to tell the front from the back when you use a template? I'm not dogging anybody, I'm not being rude, I'm just curious if it is just a newbie mistake or what?

I'm pretty sure it wasn't a newbie mistake. There are a lot of people that put their bows on different ways. Doesn't make one right or wrong. I'm just sayin...

Got you too, huh?..lol... Not sure why either. It's prolly either a matter of preference or maybe a newbie mistake?

I hv the template, and no, even with the templates, one would be able to tell which is the back and the front... The template i hv is the NBNG and I use that just to get the loops even (if i hv lots to make). I can get even loops, without the template, by hand. I can make the twisted boutique by hand. Either way, I know which is which.

No pun intended and am not being rude either...

Hmmm....interesting...it may just be a newbie mistake. I for one am a newbie and if mine are backwards I would want to know. I would hate to keep making bows wrong.

I'm a newbie and made just that mistake, LOL! I knew something didn't look right on my bow, but didn't know what it was. So I posted a pic of my bow and thanks to the helpful ladies here I found out. I had no idea that I was supposed to turn my bow over after folding.

Sometimes I put the bottom layer of a stacked bow upside. I do it on purpose though because it's a bit flatter.

I've been wondering this too. I was at a craft fair this spring and one of the vendors had tons of bows and they were all backwards. I was like WTH?

I wouldn't know if mine were backwards or not. I'm a newbie.
