LoL! Ah, yes! I think I understand what you mean.. I should pinch some more of the ribbon part in the middle. I'm definitely going to try that this weekend (when/if I get up enough nerve to try this again lol)

You're much to kind! I know what you mean about one side being off.. me too!

I really want to make it work with the BBM. If all else fails, I'll try hand folding next. I think I remember the video you're talking about. Congrats that you found something that works for you!

Girl, your bows are pure perfection!

I'm not sure how else to do the sewing part though? I followed the instructions in the BBM video... 3 stitches. Should I be making more of them?

I know, right? It's just a wee bit off. But I swear, I worked with it so long ... I just couldn't make this one any better. I kept getting the same result.

It looks like you are almost there! I can't do mine by sewing. I bought Daisy's tut and have tried to mimic her technique over and over. However, I can get mine right by tying them. Have you tried that? I use a figure 8 fold and then use my gator bite to tie them off with embroidery floss.

I agree with everyone else. All it looks like to me is your crease needs to be more on top. LOL!! I'm not one to talk. My DH bought me the bbm for christmas. I made bows with them and posted. To my dismay I was told they were backwards.
I fixed them though and reposted it and everybody said I had it. Keep practicing. maybe pull tighter and manipulate the bow. Idk if it's me but I find it easier to manipulate the bow if I bake and starch it first. I don't bake it long the first time. Only 5min on 250 degrees. Then after manipulating it I restarch and bake longer. HTH.

When you adjust your creasing, make sure the top and bottom of the ribbons edge fold towards the back. I have started making sure of this and my twisted bows look so much betterh. Good start.

Excellent tip!!!

Maxine...if you look carefully at the tips I sent you, you will see that I don't sew mine (sort of). I use the needle and thread to help keep my ribbon together so it won't slide around and then pull it through to wrap it.
