Default Please help me get this twisted boutique!

Ugh! I'm new to bow making, but not to crafts so I think I'm doing pretty well. The problem I'm having is that only one set of my loops is at that sharp twisted angle. The other just doesn't have that little divet in it. I think they're supposed to both do that flipping up twisty thing right? the perky part lol

Is the second set of loops twisting because of the sewing or tying? Or do I need to do better at the arranging part? Because I can do the figure 8 method or the pin method fine and it looks like all the tutorials, but when its finished...only one set of loops is twisted, the other looks like a regular bow.

Advice?

Is it the top or bottom loops that are being problematic? Do you have a pic of a completed bow?

I think I'm starting to get it. I think? LOL

This is the first type of bow that I've made and I think its starting to look like the others I see a little. I'm using a sally clip and tying it. I think tying it is giving me better results than sewing.

Thoughts? I know they're a little crooked. My 2 yo kept yanking on my arm every few seconds. haha And I wanted tails, but they were too short so they're not hanging out like I wanted.

The ribbon is 7/8th

You did it right, just shape it and you will be set.I find it easier to somewhat shape the ribbon before sewing/tying off.The ribbon shapes much easier that way to me.

if you are using 7/8" ribbon, I might try making the length of ribbon shorter as it is a bit easier, try starting with about 2" shorter ribbon
