Your bows are awesome! Oh my goodness, yall would have a heart attack if I showed you my very first. It was HORRIBLE.

I do all of my twisted by hand (no templates) and I just can't get the loops even sometimes.

I have the same problem with my bow folding up on me!!!!! I sew them like the NBNG tut says which ends at the bottom back. Then I take the thread from the bottom back and bring it up and around the top 2-3 times then I tie it off in the back. Am I wrapping the wrong way????? Should my thread start and end on the back???? Hope this makes sense!

I would love to see a twisted using 1 1/2 ribbon. Most that I have seen use 7/8. I need to see if mine look correct.

Thanks!


Marking for instructions!!!

At least you ladies can reocgnize now that your first bows were ugly. I am NOT a good bow maker at all. At one point in time I did try. I made a version of the loopy bow and gave some to my niece who was a baby at the time. Well she is 5 now and her mother still puts those ugly bows on her. Half the strands are falling out and hanging down and she just trims as she goes. It's a mess. The other day she told me "Don't worry, I passed them to another girl at the church". I was like OMG are you kidding me, you gave those hideous things away to another girl to wear. they are real real bad, no exaggeration.

I have a question..well a few. How do you make your bows with 2 layers? Do you glue them together, use fabric tac, or just hold them together as you fold. I tried the glue and it was a mess. Also trying to sew with the 2 bows was nearly impossible!
