Default Jumping right in here! Help with Pinwheel Bow

Hi, all! I tried making the pinwheel bow that was in the free tutorials link under the newbie section. Well, mine was not coming out looking anything like it. I tried like a dozen times. I know one of my issues is that I was using 1" grosgrain and not 1.5", but I couldn't even get it to look similar to the one in the example. Are there other instructions/tutorials for that kind of bow?

Second - I want to make a bow out of a print grograin, and I'm not sure what kind to make. I really want something different that the typical regular bow. Any suggestions? This ribbon wasn't working well with the pinwheel instructions because of the folding, so the print ends up on the back half of the time, which isn't the look I want.

Any help is appreciated! TY!

If I had to make a suggestion i would suggest getting the NO Bow No Go templets. they come with lots of instructions on how to make hair bows. You can also check out u tube for some free instructions, and also "girly things" if you take a picture of your pinwheel maybe someone can help "fix it".
