Default twisted bows 5/8 and 3/8

Ok so I have the 1.5 and 7/8 twisted bow down. But cant seem to manage the smaller ribbon. Mainly I think since I sew the middle on the bigger bows to create my crease. Wasnt able to get it right before that. and cant do that on the smaller. So for you ladies out there any tricks, clues or tuts with the smaller ribbon. My daughter is just starting to get her hair in and I want to get away from the headbands and big bows and start doing her some smaller clips. TIA!

I don't know if this will help you, but I use a "m" shaped crease on my medium and large bows, (you know what I mean? 3 humps?) Anyway, to make my small bows, I cut out the middle crease and just make 2 humps. I'm terrible at explaining things, so this might not even make sense. That's just what works for me.

I understood it I do the same, don't do as many stitches and pull TIGHT.

I only do 2 "humps" on my 7/8 bows, but do one "hump" on my 3/8. Works great!

thanks ladies. I think I figured out the 2 hump thing. I usually do 3 stiches on my 7/8 and 1.5 and that wasnt working on the little ones. Got the 5/8 pretty good but my 3/8 still look horrible no matter what method I use, so might just leave those up to the pro's and order those wholesale. LOL!
