Default Sewing a twisted bow?

I think my problem with my bows is how I am sewing them? I know it may be impossible, but can someone show where they put the needle in and where to go down? Does this make any sense? Is there a certain way to do it or just eyeing it?
Thanks
April

I totally suck at sewing....I just tie mine off with dental floss and then after I have my nice and pretty crease I sew up through the middle just for added security.

April, I was having the same problem. What I do is tie it off first and then push the needle through the middle.

I was sewing then creasing and it jsut isn't working. I think I am starting wrong and my loops don't go right, but they are getting better. I think.
Thanks Shelley!

Are you using a bow maker or folding them by hand?
