Default My first bow

Any pointers? I know my tails aren't the same length and I honestly don't know how that happened. Any pointers?

Default Re: My first bow

First of all, great ID name! I love Fraggle Rock!

Welcome to the forum - there are soooo many great tips and tricks here! That isn't bad at all for a first attempt (I like to completely deny that I had anything to do with my first bow attempt) and with more practice you'll just get better and better.

As for pointers, it would depend on the instructions/method you're using to fold your bows. I do mine differently than most of the people around here, so I'm usually not much help, but with a bit more information we might have a better idea of what you're asking and what you want your end result to be. Just don't want to go off on some tangent and totally confuse you.

I make mine different too (left handed.. I make everything opposite) It looks good for your first one!

I think it looks good. After you add the center knot and even out the tails, that will be a very good first bow!! Which instructions are you using? I'm like the others I have better luck with my own way. The free hipgirl instructions are the best I've seen.I have the LAMB's instructions and to me they are just not easy-but that's probably just me!
