Judy is that you and your son in the video he is too cute. Reminds me of my little one, that is why I make my bows when she is sleeping! lol. I did find your video very helpful.

I do have templates and I can't make a twisted boutique with a template to save my life. It never looks right. I actually decided to go back to the very first fold I ever taught myself, the figure 8, with a wider ribbon (I tried bout 7/8" and 1.5") and by manipulating it, came up with that example, which I think is hands down better than any of the others I've managed.

I will trying increasing the length next time to see if it makes a difference. I'm petrified that my loops will droop though. I think I also figured out, and yes this will make me sound like an idiot, that when I was messing around with them before, I was looking at the wrong side of the darn bow. No wonder if never looked right. LOL.

Let me know if you find out. LOL.

I pressed the inside of the loops (top & bottom) to the back more so that the center really sticks up. What do you think?
I think that is looking great!

that looks perfect! I myself am having trouble with the tbb. So pretty but so hard to do, my problem is my loops never look like that, no matter what I try. :-(

My friend has several different templates and she can't get them to look like that either.

Have you seen the bows on poshhairbows.com? Her bows are amazing!!!

I'm really great at pinwheel bows, korkers, etc, just can't get the tbb down.
