Default Twisted Boutiques are ruining my life :P

Twisted boutique bows are driving me INSANE. Even when I manage to make one they never look as perky, and stiff as some of the gals I see on ebay and facebook.

I know I know...practice practice practice. I have the templates. I've starched my ribbon, I've tried fusing it.

Why oh why does THE most popular bleeding bow have to be so impossible?

Oh, thank goodness someone else out there can't make them either! I have tried so many times, the only thing I get out of them, is a good laugh at my ending result!

I would love to watch someone make one. Just wish someone lived in AZ too!

You'll get it...just keep trying. I tried to show my friend how to do it and she kept saying mine doesn't look like yours. We realized I'm left handed and she's right handed. We figured out she had to fold backwards. lol

I can't do it either. I have the no go templates and I've watched the video a gazillion times. I'm still doing something wrong. I too wish I had someone sitting right next to me that knew how to do it so I could see (or they could tell me what it is) because I sure can't figure it out. But I'll keep plugging away. One side seems "ok" (not great) but the other side...not so much.

I agree...post a pic and we could tell you what you can do differently to help you. Most of the time the trick is in the angle you use when you bring all the loops together.

I have the templates from the gal who made the gator bite. They're good templates, don't get me wrong. They really help with the other bows. I've looked at her video too and while she seems to just pump em out mine never look like a twisted.

The one time I came out with at relatively twisted boutique was totally free hand with written instructions and I starched the living daylights out of the thing when i was done and I still don't think it looks terribly twisted.

See below.
