is it the twisted bow? If so I always had that problem when I used the figure 8 method. Now I use the same method that you use with the No Bow No Go Template but without the template lol and it is much easier (for me anyway). There is also a template that uses the figure 8 method called the brilliant bow maker. If you are having trouble with consistency or balance a template might be the way to go HTH!

I have problems with the figure 8 method too. Ill have three perfect loops and one that sticks up flat. I also use the wrap around method without a template. It works better for me.

This is the wrap around method. http://www.girlythingsbows.com/boutique_bow.html

The figure 8 method, you make a figure 8 with the ribbon, and then collapse the two big loops in to make the bow loops.
