Default Help!? How do I make this!?

Now this bow is STINKING ADORABLE... All around

ADORABLE EXAMPLE BOW

But I am specifically asking how to get the TWO layers on the one bow?! See how hers is yellow and pink? Do you just hold two ribbons together when folding?! I make by hand and that seems like it would be incredibly difficult...

So how does one do this?! Anybody know?!

I wonder if this seller is on HG, she's got some UBER cute stuff.

you just hold the 2 ribbons stacked together then singe them with your heat tool (wood burner or lighter) and it fuses them together. Make sense at all?? MUCH simpler than it looks!

This bow is precious! I have tried to make a similar bow and IMO it really is difficult to keep the two pieces of ribbon together while making the bow. I use the figure 8 method.

This bow has to be tall when placed in the hair.

Yes, place both ribbons together. I worked with a HG and did lots of bows like this very cute with the color combos. But I do want to tell you its gets though when it comes to the creasing because it gets thick. Then your center will not be as tight IMO.

You definitely want to be sure to use embroidery thread or something equally as strong when you're sewing so you can pull extremely tight! And have a hard flat surface to push your needle off of to get it through.

You can also use Xyron X it makes them sticky, but you have to be careful lining them up just right. With the repositionable you can move it was needed.

So lay them flat, and then seal the ends together to make them connected?
Lol, I feel so dumb.. Haha.
