Default Pinwheels

When I make a basic pinwheel (3 inches) one of my tails always stick up. How do i keep from doing this? It doesn't stick up right away, usually after my daughter is wearing it for a while and I am constantly pushing it down.
Thanks.

When you crease make sure the edges of each side of the ribbon is facing down, that my be the problem

if you sew, then make sure you have a stitch close to the edge of the ribbon

I haven't ever figured out how to sew. I actually take fishing line and tie all my bows.
Could it be because of the template that i use??

You dont really have to know how to sew to sew your bows, just take a needle and thread knot the end, do a few up and downs in the center of your ribbon, creade your bow however you prefer and stick the needle back through the center of the bow to tie off.

LOL-That's so funny because I actually LIKE mine to curl up on the ends. I made one that way and I think it was how I creased and then a couple of friends said they wanted one and I couldn't duplicate it!! LOL
