LOL I would but I just tore the dang thing apart from frustration of working on this for 2 days and still can't get it!

I read that if I sew the end together of each color ribbon, making it one long piece that it would also work. BUT when I did that I had the 2 top loops the same color and the two bottom loops were both color #2. Maybe I'm just a having a huge brain fart I can't for the life of me get the one loop bow (using figure 8) to look somewhat decent. Ughhh.

When I fuse the ribbons together and fold like normal I get 2 bottom loops color #1 and the 2 top loops are both color #2. I can't figure out how to get the colors diagonal like in the pictures. When i do the figure 8 method my loops are not even at all.

How are you attaching your ribbons together? Are you doing color 1. color 2, color 1 & color 2 in that order? If you want them diagonal I think you have to make the middle part of the ribbon the same color & the second color goes on each end. It has been a while since I have played with it but I think that is how it is supposed to go.
