Default I give up! Next best bow?

I have already posted this, and I watched all the youtube tuts, went to their websites, and still can't make a &**(*&&& boutique bow (gator bite AND nbng). They all keep coming out floppy, loops wrong sizes or looking like a fancy basic.

What's the next best fun bow besides pinwheel?

Keep trying! I've been working on them a.long.time. and I *finally* got them the way I like them. I've bought different tuts, checked out all the youtube videos, and *finally* got them to go the way I want them with my nbng and sewing (after I'd made a couple hundred of them - lol).

I really like the tuxedo type, like the one on my headband below. It's on a headband, but they are really easy to make, can be made in a variety of sizes, can easily be put on french clips or alligator clips, and the big kids like to wear them.

That's what my 8-11yo customers want! Funny...

I just wanted to get boutique down b/c I see so many girls in my daughters preschool wearing them. But no one has even noticed that boutiques aren't in my selection.

I have my first "show" Friday night and I was hoping to have more than pinwheel, tuxedo and double-tail...

dont give up. Toss the gator bite to the side and sew them. The key is in the sewing for me.

You should check out the tutorial by JustDaisy. I struggled, purchased several different templates and tutorials and I FINALLY got it after buying her tutorial!
