Default How to make loops perfect??

Hi everyone! I am sort of new to making boutique bows--I just can't seem to get my loops perfect and uniform. I am using the figure 8 technique. Any advice would be awesome!

Thanks,
Jamie

I second that. I tried every method I could find, and finally broke down and bought the NBNG templates. All my bows have been WAYYYYYYYYYYY better since then. Great investment!

So,
int he forum a while back there was a lady who put up a post on this. I have LOVED her ever since. I was in the same shoes. She used a piece of carboard that she cut however many inches wide that you want your bow to be. Then she made a slit in the center big enough just for you to sew through the middle of the bow. She wrapped her riibon around it and then sewed up through the middle. You take it off the cardboard and walllla a perfect bow. Ill try to find the link.

Before i fold my bow, I fold it in half, crease, then fold that in half and crease leaving about a 1/4" tail (longer if it is a single layer bow). Then when I fold the bow, I line the creases up and it gives perfect, even loops. HTH.
