That's it!!! Do you fold it like a twisted just not as twisty? Thats' what I did but mine just doesn't seem exactly right.

I would think so, and maybe use a little less ribbon since you don't have to exaggerate the loops as much, if that makes sense. I'm hoping someone comes along with some more information because i'd love to make this type.

This is my 7", I'm not sure if that's the type of bow you mean though. Sometimes I make them with longer tails by request, but it's not any special fold so I'm not sure if this might be what you're talking about at all.

I love that bow! Pointers would be greatly appreciated!

Is this bow sort of what you were thinking of?

Hi, sorry for the delayed response, I lost track of the thread. Yes, I do fold mine just like the twisted, but due to the size of the ribbon and the length that I make it, it just falls more softly. I do it just as perky as I do my regular twisted, it just lays differently.

This is really just a basic boutique bow that isn't done to pop up. Here's some instructions I found online. (I made mine with a No Bow No Go template). In the sixth step (or at least the instructions next to the sixth picture) linked to above, the instructions tell you to spread the loops until they stand up. I didn't do that. Instead I left them how they were in the fifth picture and just stitched it like that. Even after you're done with this you can make the bow sort of stand up by curving the ends towards you. I made mine very subtly curve under to get more of that old-fashioned basic bow look.

Truthfully, this was the very first bow I made with the No Bow No Go template. I love how it looks in my daughter's hair. The size I used was 1.5" ribbon with the 4.5 " template.

I hope this helps. I'm still pretty new to this. I'm just beginning to get my act together to try to sell. If nothing else, I'm hoping it will pay for my supplies so I can get new cute ribbons!

This has become my favorite bow to make. I thought I loved twisted bows, but this style is the style I've been trying to figure out for months. I love it even more than twisteds, and I love twisteds. I looked at one a customer had for her daughter and she liked the style but the bow itself was terrible. She wanted to order a lot of bows in that style from me, so I came up with a very simple way to make one and she loved it and has ordered seven of them. Woohoo!

I use templates for all my bows, but I don't for this one. I've attached some pictures of mine. Let me know if this is the style you are looking for and when I get a minute maybe I can do some simple (FREE instructions on how I do it. I don't fold mine like a twisted, so the loops sit a little differently and are a little perkier. You can see the difference in the two better in person. Sorry for the cruddy pictures. I didn't use my lightbox, so it's a little grainy and poorly lit. Let me know if this is the bow you are thinking of.

PS ~ My notifications and PMs are a bit wonky, so it's hit and miss if I get them. I'll check back and see if this is the style you're looking for.

Shelby2000...I would love to learn how to make that bow. It reminds me of the "wee ones" bows that I have been searching for instructions for forever. I like how it lays flatter but still has nice loops. I like twisteds for my daughters ponytails, but when I just part her hair to the side and put in a twisted it looks silly sticking up off of her head!

I'd like your instructions if you would be so kind :O)
