Default Re: Help with the Boutique Bow

I tried it with the 1.5" ribbon, and when I tie it off, the loops are straight up and down, instead of fanned out to the sides. This is driving me insane. My fiancee is shaking his head at me right now. Oh men!

I'm going to try it with 7/8" now, and see if it works better.

This is what I have so far. I'm so embarrassed about it, cause it looks terrible.

I think I might have it. I want to thank all of you for the help and guidance you have given me. You have been so wonderful!

My loops are a bit uneven, but I think I have the general idea of the bow now.

What do you all think?

This is 7/8" ribbon that is 20" long.

Looks good, but this is the back. Flip it over & take another pic so we can see the front. I think you've got it girly!
