Default Am I missing something or what..

I cannot get this right to save my life! How to you get the loops to look so perfect? My bow is the brown and pink one.. but I want it to look like the other one. What am I doing wrong?

Do you use a template to make your bows? They look pretty much the same to me, you may want to consider using heat and bond to stick your ribbons together then there will be no gap.

The first bow belongs to Shawn of E&K Bows .....make sure you link her picture to her ebay or etsy store.

Your bow looks pretty good. What are you trying to improve on? Shawn's bows are as perfect as you can get when it comes to twisted boutique bows.

It looks pretty dang close to me, the only differences I can see is the amount and spikes, also is your stacked? E&K's bows are like top top notch, yours are really close.

Also it seems like the e&k bow is a tad bit tighter than your, maybe cut your ribbon an inch or so shorter and see how that works out.

I could be wrong but may the other bow is made with a wider ribbon.

You forgot the surround loops.. I think that makes a big difference.

your bow looks great, i don't know what loop you want to improve on. maybe get the two ribbons to be tighter together so its not all loose.

Your bow looks very similar to the picture you provided. The only difference I see is that the ribbon of the bows have some space between the two and your loops don't look as uniformed as hers, but it might be because of the ribbon.

Overall it's a beautiful bow and the color combination is beautiful!!!!
