Default creasing help for classic bow on bbm

i got the bbm a little while back and haven't been able to break it out til now. i've been trying the classic bow sewn, and i honestly am getting very frustrated because i cannot for the life of me get the loops to line up after i crease it. front loop always shifts off to the side. i have a feeling that it's the top, last crease that's causing the problems, but no matter what i do it's not lining up. can anyone give me some help? i've watched karyn's video over and over and have studied the book, so i know i'm just doing something stupid. thanks!

I am no expert as a matter of fact many of mines turn out to be like your first one (with a loop longer than the other ones) and I haven`t been able to figure waht am I doing wrong either

I use the gator bite for my creases but I do know that I have to tie it right at the place where the 'X' is or they will come out crooked. If you move to one side or the other of the crease you end up with one wide longer. So in your top picture the thread should be moved to the left some

I'll help! There is also a stitch placement guide in the yahoo group that you can print out and add to your binder.

sent you a pm.

thanks everyone!

after 3 days of poor karyn probably pulling her hair out with me, messaging back and forth, we figured out my problem was an easy fix...make my stitches smaller, closer together. i don't know what wasn't clicking in my head with this one, but karyn was such a big help and very kind to this beginning bowmaker many thanks karyn, and to any other newbies, definitely don't be afraid to ask her for help, she's awesome my bows look great now!
