Default Boutique bows

God knows that i have tried to make hairbows and for strange reason they keep coming out soooo ugly. It is because i use my left hand??? I have used lots of tuts and i dont want to buy any bow magical whatever to make a bow. Can someone help me or should i just give up.

Thanks for the help

Karen

It really does make a difference if you are left handed! It takes a bit longer. I am no good at instructions but, I just stared at the tutorial pics until I figured out how to do each step using my left hand (backwards!). I finally got it down! GOOD LUCK and DON'T GIVE UP!

I have to agree with Jessica, I am also left handed but do almost everything right handed. I know it sounds weird. But with that said, I make bows using my left hand. I just started also, and I still have to start over alot of the times. Have fun with it....I have to try many time sometimes.....

Do you want to learn how to free hand them or do you want to try making your own templates??? i made my own template out of an old sterilite container lid. I measure how big i wanted them and i cut them out with an exacto knife i can show you a pic of one of them. Then i just use these instrucitions. here is pic of one of mine using the template i made.


Here is the video i use
