Michelle posted instructions for this a few days ago. I'm sure someone has the link.

I can't tell if it is one ribbon or two. If it is one, then it is a pinwheel. Michelle has great instructions on how to do it making two bowtie bows and putting them together. But it has no tails...

I'm almost positive that it is one solid piece of ribbon and a pinwheel turned "backwards" (notice the tails are behind the loops instead of in front). Basically, you would make the pinwheel as normal but then flip it over before adding the center. HTH

No problem... just glad I could help someone out. Thanks for the compliment on my pinwheels and yes the back view of mine is exactly like the one pictured above, that's why I figured the one above was done this way. That "method" will also work on a lot of the basic type bows. It's also a nice way to make a bow with no tails... just cut the tails off as close to the middle as possible, seal the ends with fray check, and once the bow is placed on a clip it will pretty much hide the severed tails (depending on how thick the clip is). Then ta-dah NO TAILS

Yeah, I use the TOTT instructions and their hair bow maker, I can't get the loops even without it I have never made a pinwheel by hand but just looking at the instructions posted above, you should get the same results. As you're making it, pay a little more attention to the back (which will become the front when completed ) Remember, practice makes perfect and hopefully you have a little more patience than I do
