I have a template I made with cardboard. The problem is my tails don't really point down. After it's tied it looks just like I want it to. Then I add the center and The tails no longer point the way I want. Such a simple bow is giving me a headache!!

Very pretty pinwheels!

Now that I read your last post I bet is probably because you tie them. I sew mine. I have it set to the # of stiches Once I let my sister help me, and I had to fire her because she wasn't taking the right # of stiches I love her though, and she knows where i'm coming from. You should try sewing them. I've never tied mine, so I don't know how to help you there

I've tried sewing but still no luck. Do you run the needle through and then pull? Any help would be great before I start throwing pinwheels!!

I noticed a lot of you are using smaller ribbon for the center. Does that help to keep your tails where you want them. After putting on the center, my tails are out of place so the bow does not have the rounded look I am going for.
