I'm impressed!!! You should see my first like 20 twisted ones...HAHH I'm still working on it. I think probably the toughest bow I've tried! It helps to have a photo next to you and make sure you are on track with the loops and center. Great work!!

I do have that on my "things to try when making a twisted boutique bow" list! lol (honestly, I *really do* have a list... how lame am I?) I'm going to try tying one this afternoon. Wish me luck!

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.
Thanks Jess! I'm definitely going to work on the crease And thanks for the suggestion about baking first (I need all the help I can get! lol )

That's a great tip cars! Thank you! I will double ck that I'm doing that!

Yes, I did see that I think maybe the sewing is working against me? I mean, if I sew it wrong in the beginning, then no amount of ribbon manipulation is going to help.

Thanks kelly! Yes, I did want to work with the BBM image right in front of me because I thought that would help. I watched the video a dozen times but I just can't quite get it right (not yet at least, I'm going to keep trying though!)

I think it's looks pretty darn good. I can't get mine to crease right if I hand sew, so I tie mine off, then if it's a bow going to someone else I will run a few stitches through it.

Which video are you watching?

Maybe that is the problem then? The sewing part? (or at least, part of the problem)?

This is the video I've been watching. I tried sewing the center part and then pulling it together.

Maxine, you are such a sweetie! I love how you've replied to like every suggestion - I'm crossing my fingers for you that it will "Click" soon, then you'll be the one giving the tips! BTW: You really are close!

I hand fold and after I've shaped it use a pin to hold everything in place while I sew. I second the post that said make sure the edges are folded back!

Don't give up! I remember when I "got it" I wanted to throw myself a party!

Aw, thanks hon I really do appreciate when people take the time to offer suggestions and help. I can only benefit by trying to learn from them

You know, I was wondering about using a pin. I think I might have an old t-pin around here that might be useful.

LoL @ throwing yourself a party! I SO hear you on that! lolol
