Default Bow...doesn't look right!

O.K. I have been asking for a week now about the TNT templates because of my mom... So, she made a bow using the figure 8 technique. We both are on the fence. It doesn't seem to look right. What do you all think? Honest, please....

What is going on with that ribbon?
It looks like someone polka dotted it with a sharpie

lol! We used the ribbon because we didn't wanted to use something that we would feel bad if we had to discard.

But, besides the ribbon, doesn't the bow look strange?

oh okay!
but yes the loops are a little too big and eneven,and the tails are not long enough.There is a site with free templates you make from cardboard that work decently,let me try and find it.

Looks like your template may just be too large, you also need to leave your tails a little longer if you are trying to do a tails-down bow. Even with templates, it still takes practice, practice, practice to make good bows

I think the bow looks fine, but its not a figure 8 technique. I dont think TNT templates show you the figure 8.

ok it doesn't seem to bad, with that being said, the right side is shorter like the top loop isn't even. and I would have made the tails a bit longer. HTH

Hi,

Even thought I am not a big fan of poke a dots, what I see that is wrong is one side is bigger then the other. Each side looks good but not together. I hope you can understand what I am saying..
