At first sight is a pinwheel Ok... But if there´s something tricky for me: the tails. When you do a pinwheel there is always a tail on top and the other one completely in the back. In this case one of this tails are in the middle. Check it.

That is just a pinwheel. Keep in mind not to post pictures if they are not yours, you may post links to the picture, just not the pic itself,

When did we start doing that? I thought as long as it was watermarked or we mentioned where it came from it was ok?

It took me about a good week worth of practice to get it but now it's easy as pie

That was very nice of you to share the tut.

I tried what I said earlier and it looked similar but the tails weren't the same as in that picture. This is how I arrived at that type bow.

1st picture is how you normally would wrap it, with the edges all lined up.

2nd Picture is the front of the bow. I basically wrapped it the same as before, but then pulled the top ribbon and tail down over the middle section and made it over lap. I did the same thing with the bottom ribbon and tail, I pulled it up over the middle section and made it overlap.

3rd picture is how it looked in the back after wrapping it.

4th picture is my bow. Looks the same to me, just with diffrent slanted tails instead of v-cut. I left it raw so you could see it better.

Sorry for the crappy pictures. I did it quickly. I also hand tie mine with a gator bite, if that helps!!!

No problem!!! I always feel like nobody pays much attention to what I have to say because I don't have a ton of posts and haven't been around a super long time. Its nice to know that what I said was valuable to atleast one person!

I know exactly what you mean. I'm not going to keep repeating what someone else has already posted, even if I can say it diffrently. I mean, once it has been said, no need in repeating it, right? I mean, I want my post count up just as bad as anybody else, but I'm not going to make myself a nusence just to get i there!!
