Default Stupid boutique bow!!!

Why do my boutique bows always come out sorta funky looking?! It's driving me insane. I can do every other type of bow except for the easiest one!!! Help! How do you make yours and how do I keep the loops in place?

I've always thought it's the hardest. I'm still not happy with mine, but they work alright.

Hang in there, you'll get it!

It took me about a year to get it right. I have many bows that are all mangled- lol and were supposed to be the boutique fold.

I totally know how you feel! I can't figure it out! It is so irritating because everyone makes it seem so easy!

I have a whole box of bows that are crappy. The more I learn (esp. from this site) the more I realize how crappy my first ones were. LOL

Boutique bows make me really angry sometimes. It took me MONTHS before I realized I was folding the *%&%* thing wrong. I still have some real doozies. The ribbon slips like crazy. There is ribbon that is much better suited for a boutique bow (it pops really nicely). Then there's other ribbon that doesn't behave in the same way, but you still gotta make it work.

Those "stinkers" that i have... I put them in a drawer and I'll give them away to little girls. The little girls love to use them as play bows.

I agree. Post some pics. Otherwise we have no chance of helping you.

I've made 1 boutique bow that I'm really proud of. The others are just ones that pass muster, but they aren't my favorites.

Remember, I have the box of "Bows Gone Bad."

My cats will sleep in them. Hopefully, they will not use it as a litter box...then, Lorraine, it really would be poopy!
