Default two toned pinwheel?

Is there any way to do this? like for each loop to be different colors? like they would alternate between 2 different colors so say I were to do pink and black it would go tail pink, loop black, loop pink, tail black, loop pink, loop black? I hope that makes sense. I know you can do a stacked pinwheel but I'm really wondering how I could do this two toned one. Ive tried making a two toned boutique bow with the tut on this website and I cannot get it to look right so I thought pinwheels may be easier.

Is this what you had in mind? I just fused my ribbon with my woodburner, making the tails 1/2 as long as the loop ribbon, and alternating them: tail A, Loop B, Loop A, Loop B, Loop A, Tail B. Does that make sense?

Fuse the ribbon with a wood burner. You would need to know your loop measurements. It may make it a bit more difficult to sew through the middle. or if you could off center the fused parts just a little so that you could still get the creases and sew through them it might work.

Hope you are able to figure it out and will post pics (maybe even instructions..lol)

Ok this is crooked and I think the loops are off a bit but I was just playing. I cut and heat sealed the ends together, but because I do it with a lighter it was really hard and it seems it will fall apart with too much playing. I may try to find a way to sew them together instead since the crease is right where it is tied anyway you wont see it especially with a center.
