Default Over the Top bows??

I really really want to try one!! But I look at pics and I don't know where to start...I can figure out pretty much anything else by looking at a pic, and have tried just about everything else. My problem is...I can't figure out what goes to what? Loopies, and feathers, and spikes, and bows? What "normally" goes where? I am planning on experimenting but any tips would be helpful! Thanks!!

I think a lot of the girls have just figured it out by trial and error. I've made a few and I'm not the best at it. I do believe there are tutorials for sell on places like etsy. But like I said it's just something you'll have to play with to get figure it out. I do know there are tuts on here for surrounds and whatnot. Just get all your stuff together and play. Good Luck!

Personally these are the HARDEST bows for me to do. I have a "formula" for all of my other bows and the loops are all even and the spikes are all the same etc. On the OTT bows it is hard for me to just throw a bunch of crap together and call it a bow! LOL! But that is pretty much how they go! There is no wrong or right way to do it, I don't think. Just do it the way you want it to look. If you don't like it, try again!

This is the type of bow i am talking about...so maybe I didn't mean "OTT", but I don't know a name for these...I am going to try one today and just see what I come up with
(And this bow is by Raves from Rio)
