Angry Please critique my "flower" bow and twisted bow

I've been working a while trying to get my twisted bow "just" right and I keep feeling like I'm doing something wrong... Can anyone help me?

And I've just started doing "flower" type bows. What do you think?

Sorry about the center, I wanted to leave both centers natural so you could see my bows raw.

Please and thank you!

The flower is very cute. I don't have the patience to do that & burn the edges.
The bow is on the way. It depends on how you are making it. When you are seperating your loops you need to make the x a lot closer at the top & bottom. It almost looks like it is too close but when you sew/tie it off it pulls back apart some. That is what gives the twisted look to it.

I just made some step by step instructions for some ladies the other day, if you wanted to see it, i could email it to you also. Ive sent it to about 5 people in the past few days, but i havent spoken to any of them yet to see if it helpe lol. it involves making your own template but its REALLY easy and its just made of cardboard...

The flower is cute, I think it looks great... put your center in and your good to go.

For the twisted...I think you have to just twist your X a bit more. I am no
"twist bow wizard" but the more you egsadurate the X shape, the better the bow will be. Be sure to keep everything "straight" in the back of the bow
kwim?

your flower is great. Your on the right road with your twisted but its all about the angles. You need to angle each loop almost to 90 degrees and hold very tight as to not slip on each loop. Keep working you will get there.
