Default Why isn't it loopy?

You mean in between wraps? I'll try that.

Default Re: Why isn't it loopy?

I have a similar problem when I make loopy bows. I make my loops a lot larger, but still end up with all of them going in the same direction- makes it look more like a bow I wore as a child in the 80's and not the pretty new ones girls wear now. I guess the thing I am doing wrong is wrapping them too tightly before trying to spread the loops out in the direction I want. Try shaping your bow as you go and definitely make your loops longer.

I have had that same problem with the loopy bows that I have made as well, but I finally played around with it enough that i got the loops fuller. But now I notice that only after a few minutes of my dd wearing the bow all the loops are right back in the middle of the bow. Is that because the loops are not big enough as well?

O.K. this one is alot better. I made the loops bigger and kind of pushed each layer off to opposite sides when I wrapped. Now I think it is too big for DD. I'll save it for when she gets bigger but I do like how it turned out. The colors match in person but not in my bad lighting. Thanks for the help!

WOW! You did it! Love your second try! I have only made one so far...and it kinda looked like your first one, too. Now when I do the second, I'll try what you did...the results were great!
