Default twisted bow center problem

ok i think i finally figured out my method for making awesome twisted boutiques. but when i wrap the center, they warp a little at the top loops, they lose some of the perk.

i used 7/8 ribbon for the bow and tried a 5/8 knotted center

so what is the secret there?

Oh, go you!!! You need to add a pic of your pretty new bow!!! As for the center, I have the same problem sometimes. I normally use 3/8 for the center so it isn't as bulky, but sometimes I use larger...it depends on the size of bow, etc.

I use 3/8 ribbon for my center. Sometimes you need to adjust the loops to make room for the center ribbon to fit properly.

I totally know what you mean!!!! This drove me nuts for the longest time. I make a knot, pin it to the center of my bow, then fold the ends in half lengthwise to make the ribbon thinner, then wrap & glue.

ok, i'll try smaller ribbon! and the method i used is too funny. i used double stick tape to hold the loops in the middle then sewed it...turns out really really good solved my problem of the loops shifting when i would pick it up to sew

no picture yet, sorry. i'm feeling lazy

thank you everyone!!!!
