Question My 2nd ever twisted boutique bow.. better? Please review

First of all, MEGA thanks to all my fellow hipgirls who helped me so much after I posted my first attempt at a twisted boutique bow.

I sat down this morning and tried my hand at making a second (hopefully better) one.

I didn't use any templates or sewing. I took a length of ribbon and hand-folded it into shape. I then held the center together with a straight pin while I put it into my sally clip. I threaded the clip with some organdy ribbon, pulled it tightly and knotted. The first one took hours.. this one took less than 5 minutes.

What do you all think? Did I get closer this time? It looks like a twisted boutique bow to me (but then again, who am I to judge? lol )

I'd love to hear opinions from all the bow savvy hipgirls

I think it's time for your party!! Only thing I would do is push out the back of the bottom two loops to push the front forward a little bit. . . KWIM? I had to start with tying, then move to sewing - great job on not giving up!

Great job! I think if you shorten the ribbon just a smidge, the loops might be a little more perky. But it definitely is looking like a twisted!

Well, I'm loving it!! I also gave it another try today. I also made a new korker bow, but this time starched my ribbon. I will post pics later. I tried these again because you've been posting pics and a few others, and I am so determined to get these. I use to make korkers and thought they looked good, til I came here! I was so excited today. My korker actually looks pretty good and my twisted, not too bad. Its not what some of these ladies make, but I think I'm getting there!?!?
