Your picture is kind of small but that is what I keep getting too I think. I think I'm not keeping my back ribbons straight and I was told I'm not sewing it correctly but I don't know what I'm doing wrong on that part, when I look at the pictures and the video it looks right, but the bow NEVER turns out right...it just isn't a TBB. I hope some can explain it so it finally clicks. Sorry I couldn't help you...I'm looking for the same help.

I am not a pro at all but I think you need to shift the crease a bit in order to open it more and then shape your loops trying to give them the correct shape and fluff.
that`s how mines looked after making them with template and all until I learned to shape them

I think maybe check the back of your bow to make sure the lines in the back are straight. It looks like the top loops need to shift back a bit and the bottom is a little off with the one loop being a little bigger. Keep trying!

I agree, looks like you have twisted it correctly, but the creases need to be adjusted. Start by folding it in half forward, then fold the top back and the bottom back, then wrap. I saw someone post this once: peak, valley, peak, valley, peak, valley, peak. It should crease in that order. At least that's how I do it

My first thought was your loops on top look a little small so when you go to crease the loops are standing up and coming forward a bit. I can't see how the creases are. What method/template are you using? The angle and the crease is really what makes or breaks the bow

I think you need a bit more dramatic "x". It could really use some shaping too.

Ok I tried to keep the back straight but to move them over. Am I on the right track.

Which method are you using?

I tried the one where you roll the ribbon on itself and pin it and that never worked for me. I have to use a figure 8 method.

Mine is far from perfect, but it makes me happy for now.
