ronnie, thanks for that description. I kinda gave up on figuring out the bowmaking for a bit because of not being able to get it right and so much saturation. i know now that i was making a regular boutique (or at least close to it). i might just have to give it another go.

Actually it really isn't a bad bow at all. It looks a lot like a twisted boutique with the exception of the tail coming out towards the side. Some of my first came out that way too. After a while they got better. BTW.....I love your signature...such a true statement.

It looks pretty to me but it sounds like you've gotten some good advice on how to make it a little more loopy.

I used the Sally Clip as my "training wheels" for the longest time before I was able to start doing them by hand.

I would run an needle and thread in the center of the Sally Clip once I had a good grip on my bow. Wrapped several times and then secured it.

About 7-8 yrs.....but did not get into it seriously until about 4 years ago....because my bows were really bad back then. It really doesn't take very long to get it down when you have help and you "practice, practice, practice". The more you practice the more you will see the difference.
