Default Boutique Bow - Hand Sewn - SOMEONE Please Help

Hi All-

I have literally tried for DAYS to make a hand sewn boutique bow for my 2-year-old. I can kind of get it, but it just doesn't look curvy and wavy like it should. It doesn't have that scrunched look. I am using the instructions from It seems as though the two bottom sections come out really good when I scrunch it and they stay that way, but the top ones don't. It will look good when I turn them in, but then they like pop out and I have to constantly mess with it to make it have that look.Again, two of the parts or puffs look perfect, but the other two are scrunched. Does anyoe know what I am doing wrong. Or is this just how it is? Are you just supposed to mess with the other two parts to make and have that look. Any advice is greatly appreciated and thank you!!!

I'm relatively new and have that problem also. The top will come out perfect and the bottom will not be twisted enough. I play with it for awhile until it looks right then I SPRAY it so it won't move, lol!

First are you doing the figure 8? Also do you have a template? I make one out of cardboard. Mesure it out tho the length you want your bow. Cut a square and cut out a strip in the middle. Once you have your ribbon on the template. pin it take it off and sew.

If you are doing the figure 8 pin it together and then fluff/make sure its even and sew.

If you are a visual learner check out youtube for tutu's. Also Hair hardware has some good ones.
