What I meant to ask in my earlier post was about how to do 'over the top bow's. Think I said funky bows....which could relate to anything really...hehehe

Hey I was wondering how you get the ribbon to be 1 color on side and 1 color on the other side? Glue? Iron-on adhesive? I've tried it with just holding the ribbons together, and they flare out and are uneven. PLEASE HELP, LOL!

Hope this makes sense!
Okay I think I know what you meant...and I think to fix your problem you need to do it backwards what they told you in the NBNG.

I just hold them together as I fold.

My tut is somewhat like a video because the pics are as detailed as possible to explain my steps exactly.

My first bows were from 3 years ago YIKES....I gave up for about 7 months and then started fresh.

I free hand. For the crease I think it is all in how you sew it!

Your work is amazing!!
I use a combination of the two!
