Unhappy I'm a bow fraud-picture added

Apparently i'm just not cut out to make bows. No matter how hard I try, they don't come out looking correct. I have tried both NBNG and BBM templates and they still don't come out correctly.

I can make a ton of other stuff but how can I be a bowmaker when I cant make basic bows?

Just a little vent.

-Just added a picture. This is what I get from BBM 1.5 template with 24" of ribbon. Is it the right way or is this the back side? Is the actual shape of the bow correct?

This is a stacked bow I just made. It doesn't have the bow on the bottom. How does it look?

oh pashaw!

don't limit yourself to "bowmaker"

you're a creator of designer accessories

as I've seen on here, there are WAY more things to create than bows, not that I don't love bows!

I love my BBM templates. Try again!! Like someone else said: there are so many other things to make. I'm not sure what all you make, but I'm sure you have one thing that you are really good at. I take pride in my bows, but have also tried other things. Some things I see other people on here making, i try and just can't get it. So I realize that those are the things I'll leave to other crafters and I will just have to buy that specific thing from them. And I'll keep making my bows?!

Even if you do chose not to do bows anymore, keep making what you can as well as you can. We can't all do everything!
