Default How do you make this bow?

I have a friend who likes this style bow, but I'm stumped at how to make it. I can do a twisted bow all day long, but she doesn't want that. I did a twisted and twisted it a little bit to see if that would work, but it didn't. This bow looks like a twisted, but then it looks like something different is going on. Can anyone steer me in the right direction on how to make it? Thanks!

thanks for posting this. This is what all the little girls in my town wear and I can't make it for some reason.

I'm pretty sure it is a figure 8.

It looks like a basic boutique bow to me - am I missing something?

Isn't a figure 8 the same as a twisted bow?

I looked up basic boutique bow tutorials and all I came across were tutorials for twisted bows. I have a tutorial for a basic bow in my NBNG instructions, but it's not this bow. I made her one of those and it wasn't what she wanted.

Make your bow like a twisted, but don't angle the bow a lot. Then don't tighten your thread or whatever you use a lot either. My sis in law likes these bows and I took apart a bow she had and the difference between theirs and mine were that they used wire to do the center. I did the same with wire and it turned out just right. Wire is not as tight as sewing the center.

Thanks, Melissa! I'll try that.
