I actually use a double prong alligator clip to hold the middle and I use the folding method like this: http://www.hipgirlclips.com/store/in...roducts_id=398

I can only make this kind of bow with 3/8" and 5/8" ribbon -- any bigger than that and it starts to look really sad.

Hope you don mind me copying your design.. this is mine version.. My 1st successful twisted bow i think.. Lot of practise needed still.. it is slightly smaller than 2"..

Gone crazy with practising it... Small twisted measures 1.75", mini twisted @ 1.5"

I have just started working on these bows and I was wondering if I really need to invest in the gator bite. I am having a hard time with the figure 8 method. I will have to try the fold over method.

Alright, I'm pulling out my hair with this bow. I'm carrying a piece of ribbon with me and practicing all the time (ie: traffic lights, bathroom, elevator at work) to try to get this. I can get the two top loops to look good but the bottom ones come out flat. Can someone help? What am I doing wrong? UGH, this bow will be the end of me!

Default Re: 3/8" twisted or boutique bows

I'm new to bow making and trying really hard to make the twisted boutique bows. Some look great and some look AWFUL. What are the different methods? I have tried the figure 8 and I have tried the method where you wrap the ribbon around itself and then pull it out to get the shape you like. I do not want to buy anything. Is there another method that I'm missing that would help.
