Default how to make his style

ugh i hate to ask this but does anyone know how to make this style bow

http://tutuspoiled.com/item_78/Blue-...-Funky-Bow.htm

it's not a regular funky loopy bow i can make those it looks like it has a base bow but i can't figure it out! i wouldn't ask but i have a customer who is interested in buying a ton of these for her store but she doesn't want the funky loopy bows or my stacked bows she wants these bows but wants to buy them from me because she has been a customer of mine for years and knows my quality!

i will even (and i hate to say this because i am self tought) buy instructions if i have to! i don't understand why i can't figure this bow out...i tought myself how to make stacked bows with no instructions or templates but this one is just driving me crazy and i don't have as much time on my hands as i did nearly five years ago to sit and figure this out

please help thanks

bumping for you..

Looks like the base bow is a big twisted.. then it looks like figure 8 things just stuck in.. w/ some marabo.. the top parts don't look like actual bows, but just parts? like a figure 8 but not made into a bow. It's really cute!!!! I hope someone else know because I'd love to try them!!

Looking at it again.. it doesn't look like the base bow is a twisted.. because I can only see the bottom. maybe they just made a bunch of loops and sewed them in.....
Ok this is going to annoy me until we figure it out! Her site is ADORABLE!! LOVE all the bows!

i agree it looks like a twisted with "parts" in the middle. i would assume the loops would cover the glue.

Tricky. Arghh! Ok, from this one here, it looks like the bases are twisted boutiques http://tutuspoiled.com/item_112/Football--Funky-Bow.htm . I'm probably wrong with this next bit, but the top bow could be another twisted boutique just with 2 or 4 different ribbons sewn together in the middle before making the bow. The centre loops could be just ribbon looped and sewn or glued in the middle. Yeah, I'm probably wrong. Going to keep looking. It's driving me nuts now.

ETA: Ok, brain is still struggling here. It could also be a twisted boutique base with 2 colours. The top could either be like half twisted boutiques just stacked together (can't remember official name for those) or loops made the same way as surrounds. Going to go figure it out again. Hmm.

I have a guess, I have a guess!!!!

MAYBE.... 1st layer is spikes, 2nd layer is an "inside out?" bow (trr, I think), 3rd is the 3 figure 8's, then the marabou.

If it's the inside out bow, I know that's from the ribbon retreat (trr); but not sure if it's in the paid or the free instructions, as I bought mine about 4-5 years ago. Check the girlythings site, too. I think that you can do it by making the figure 8 and then putting the sides in the center.... argh! I hope someone "gets it" and posts, 'cause I'm having a hard time trying to explain without having my ribbon out to play with!
