Default what am I missing here?

Hi ladies. New to the forum but not to the craft

I have been making several different types of bows for years. I have a friend who is obsessed with the really poofy style of boutique twist bow. She gave me one that she loves (made in china ) and I"ve been trying to replicate it... I can get the general shape (same as I always do) but for some reason, I cannot get the darn thing to twist in the same way and poof up like hers does! Can anyone suggest what I might be doing wrong?

The little green bow is the one she gave me, aka "the goal." LOL The other one is my general style. Thanks!!!

Welcome to the forum. The green bow looks like a semi-twisted boutique that has been smooshed quite a bit.

Thanks for the response Do you happen to know if there are any instructions out there for that type? A google search came up empty, and I have tried every *close* tutorial I can find.

try these instructions but when you make the loops don't make them to exaggerated. you need the loops to stay close together. I'm not sure im explaining it right.

I think yours looks better than her green one already! Try spreading the loops out more before you sew it.

So you made the pink one but the goal is the green one? I think your pink bow looks much better! I wouldn't change it!
