All I do is do all of the folds I use an alligator clip at the bottom and top to help secure it. Once my folds are done I take my sally's clip and put it over the hole where your stiches go. Then take off my alligator clips. Stich (sp?) starting from the front of the template I just do however many stiches I can fit just a simple running stich not a gathered running stich just a running stich back and forth. Then leaving my needle in the bow remove my sally's clip and bow from the template. Flip it, pull it tight and tie it off. I even go through the bow and knot it just to make sure. Then I adjust the loops and starch.

HTH

I've tried and tried to make them too but once I tie them they look like butterflies So I just gave up and just use the classic template instead.

Does your ribbon stay under the tabs? I cannot get my ribbon to stay in the tabs but they stay under the arms good. Does that matter that the ribbon arent under the little tabs?

Ive watched the video she has. Ive only tried the 7/8 template and the ribbon doesnt fit like the video shows with her using the 1.5". do you have the same problem?

Lots of ribbon varies - so for learning purposes, find the "widest" 7/8th that you have.

If you have an alligator clip, that might help to clip the ribbon to keep it from sliding.

I had someone tape plastic bingo chips over the entire side to "extend" the tabs on both sides of the triangle.

If none of these help, let me know!

Make sure they stay under those tabs...I have made lots of twisted with my bbms and I find if I don't keep them under that they end up weird, like one side seems bigger than the other or 1 loop of the bow will be abnormally small/large lol
