Those are beautiful bows! I think it is fantastic that you are offering to help.

I pulled all of my old bows out of the girls closet, and was going to throw 'em out, and one of my friends asked me for them. She took them home with her and I felt horribly guilty for days about it.

I free hand! I have never used templates. My surround loops I actually take the ribbon and actually around each loop and glue as I go. This is the best method for me. I do not precut any ribbon for surround loops.

And then if you free hand (I've been using templates), how do you know how to measure the surrounds? I have the surround template but it only comes in two sizes and then if I use my other templates for bows the surrounds don't fit. I wish the surrounds came in various sizes cuz making it with the template is easy.
Sorry for being long winded.
Your bows might be collapsing in because when you make sew them, tie them you are holding the bow backwards instead of rightup, so you thread or wire is pushing them in instead of out.

I answered the surround question above!

The button is actually a resin or you can use an applique, we host buy on here for them or you can find them on ebay or etsy.

I do not starch...I use hair spray and my blowdryer. Usually if you make the bow exactly how it is suppose to be made you do not even have to shape, just spray and dry. Occasionally I bake.



Keep asking and I will answer to the best of my knowledge.
