Well at first I tried 22 in. 7/8....

But it was looking way too sloppy and I didn't feel like I could get tight angles with it. Soooo, I cut it to 18 in.


Is that too small? I'm wanting to make little twisteds.

You should be able to make a decent twisted with about 24" of 7/8. Use about 1/2- 3/4" for straight tails. If you look at the links I sent there is more detail on what to do.

BTW...Your bow overall looks great.

I use 22" of ribbon for my 7/8" ribbon. I think yours look pretty good!

Thank you ladies! I have been thinking that I'm a lost cause, lol.

I will try a different length and see what happens.

Thanks again!

My first TBB did not look anything like yours so I will say you are doing very good for being new to it. This is my inspiration: http://www.etsy.com/shop/shawnmu97 She is my favorite bow maker out there and has helped me out so much throughout the years. I love her dearly...she is a sweetheart.
