Default double ruffle boutique bows

Ok, so I make all my bows by folding--no templates. But the only way I can make double ruffle bows is using a pinwheel template. But I really dont want the flat look to them. So my question is--if you make the double ruffle bows and make them look like this:

How do you do it?? Do you use a bow template for yours?? I might have to invest in something if I can make them like that!

Here is what mine look like when I make them:

Thanks again!!

That's exactly how I make mine. I make a tbb on the bottom and a slightly smaller tbb on top. They hole their shape really nicely that way.

Thanks--I just cant get mine to stay even when I try to do it The ribbon moves too much on me. I guess I need to keep playing with it. I can make great bows with grosgrain and satin---but stink at sheers and double ruffle

I free hand them but HAVE to use my GatorBite to tie them off. I have my own "formula" ~ the base tbb is cut to 24" and the top is cut to 20". That gives me about a 4" bow. Once I do the top bow, I kinda stick the back of the loops into the tops of the loops on the base bow to help it keep its shape.

I just sent some to Pabloswhim but forgot to take pics. Maybe she will have some. I think I might have some of a wholesale order I did. Let me look.

Here we go ~ they are unfinished (which is why the ends of the knots aren't wrapped around) but it gives you an idea:

You know, those don't look like TBB to me. They look like separate loops of ribbon that are clipped onto a template & stitched together. I'm so totally going to go try this & see how it turns out... I think the length of the ribbon is going to be the key at keeping them from being too leggy/floppy.

I think if you do shorter loops and double stack the pinwheel bows you should be able to have yours look the same. Her base is only 3.5 inches and probably an inch shorter on top.
