Default How do you get the tails?

I make my boutiqe bows the figure 8 method.. I hope thats the right way. They dont have tails... Is there a way for them to have tails when I make them this way? mine are more spread out looking instead of all perky and have the "x" look in the middle. What can I do to fix that? And when I look at boutique bows it looks like one set of loops is a little large than the other. Which is the actual top part of the bow, the larger or smaller loops? Does that actually make a difference?

Thanks in advance!

I ment pics of your bows. Not what u are trying to accomplish. there is a you tube with a great technique on it. There is also a tut on here for teh itty bitty bows that is using the same technique. You will get tails with this method. I will look and try to find it.

I dont use the couch I hold it in my hand. I use big alligator clips to hold each side. and use thin jewerly elastic or elastic thread to tie it off. Then I will put a stich in the middle to hold the bow together so a baby cant pull it apart.
