Default Holy crap, did I just make a twisted bow?!?

I'm a little wigged out right now, because I have been trying these FOREVER -- using every method under the sun -- and they were so awful I couldn't even take a picture. But I was looking at the other thread on boutique bows and decided to try it one more time, and this is what it looked like! Am I close??

You're really close! Work on your loops being even,and I think you will be good to go.

I kind of used a combination of these two: Free Boutique Hair Bow Instructions: hairbow free directions, hair bow business work at home and Free HairBow Instructions: hairbow free directions, hair bow business work at home

I used the figure 8 method to get the loops, but when I folded the loop down to the middle, I secured it with the pin. Then I used a Sally's clip to hold it while I tied. I tried to sew it, but for me, they come out much better when I tie. Yay! Now just to get the loops even, and there will be no stopping me!

Those twisted bows are so hard to get the hang of!

I think you did a great job. But I will say that I've never seen it where the end of the ribbon is between the loop. It's usually placed on top. That might help when you go to make the loops even- I'm not sure if that will hurt it or not though.

If you use this fold: Free HairBow Instructions: hairbow free directions, hair bow business work at home I don't see how you would get the end of the ribbon on top. Am I just being dense??

No, with that fold the ends don't come out on top.
