Default Can someone please help me? What am I doing wrong *Pic added*

I just got my BBM in the mail a couple days ago. I posted a pic of the one I made and one I ordered from a HG on here. Hers is the pink/brown. Mine is the solid pink. My bow is meant to be an inch bigger, but it just doesn't look right to me! What am I doing wrong? I'm using a template so I thought it wouldn't be too hard.001.jpg

Your the pink one looks more like the BBM boutique bow you only need to shape it a little follow the instrutions for shaping (looking at the pics) on the BBM book and that should help....the pink and brown look folded like a twisted but not shaped like one

Are you using clips to hold it in place before you sew?

I prefer the "butterfly" look of the BBM. I think its pretty.

Did you try and flip it over to see if that helped with the shaping? I had the same problem the other day and all I did was flip it over and voila it was right!

As in it's backwards? I thought the criss cross went in the front

It looks like it is just a matter of shaping them. The creases look good and the angles appear uniform.

look on yours in the center near the crease-
Do you see how the loops spread out at the bottom of the crease vs. at the top? If you can make the top look more like the bottom I think you will be happy with it.

Right near the crease, see if you can flip the ribbon to go in the opposite direction. Use your thumbs and push the ribbon towards the "back" of the bow so the curl of the loop flips forward.

Does that make sense? I will try to get a video on shaping.
