That is how I make mine. I just add the extra pieces. The instructions call for wrapping the wire or thread around the ribbon. I always sew through one time just because I want to make sure you can't pull it out. Once when I was seperating them I had some slip. No problem with that if you go through it once then continue to wrap. You will wrap your loop then add some extras then your loop and so on. And yes you should cut some of the loops for added funkiness...

Yes, definately add some stitches. When I first started doing bows (way back lol) I started with the loopy bow free instructions. I did not sew it at all, I just wrapped as instructed. Well, 3 years later my sister in law insists on putting those bows on my niece. All the strands are falling apart and half have come unraveled. It's so sad. She has to wear those ugly bows that her "sissy" made her because I can't make a decent bow to save my life Even worse is that my niece goes to craft shows to visit me (often where I'm set up with actual bow makers) and refuses to even look at other people's bows. It's so embarrasing. She thinks that my bows are the best ever. LOL she's 5 and very loyal to me lol! I told her the other day "please Ellie, pick out some bows. Sissy is going to buy you some new bows today". Her response was "no thanks, these are fine". Well, I think I finally solved the problem because I immediately pulled off some pretty flower clippies and stuck one in her hair

I just wanted to add my thanks to you guys for giving some tips on how to do that style of bow, that's what I've been trying to find for my dd and niece for their 4th of July bows,I kind of thought that's how it was done but wasn't sure and no offense to anyone but I just can't afford that tut.

I've been collecting red white and blue ribbon that catches my eye so we shall see what happens.

Ok! So I tried this bow. It looks good until I seperate it. I did the stitches and the wrapping. But it isn't wanting to seperate very well. I cut a few but it just isn't poofing out or something. It wants to go back together. Does that make sense. I made my loops 1.5" high or maybe a tad higher. HELP me please!

I went back to look at it after my last post and decided it isn't that bad after all. I do wish it puffed out a little more and would stop trying to go back together. The worst part is I wanted to add that sparkle wire stuff and I forgot. sigh........ So what do you think now that this one is done? Any tips?
