Default Need help with a bow please

Can someone lead me to a tutorial or explain how to make this type of bow? I know its a really simple bow but Im not sure what its called to even look it up. It looks like a twisted bow without the twist. I have NBNG templates and its similar to the basic boutique bow but how can I make it so that it has a "tail" like this one so that I can monogram it?

Thanks to anyone who can help!

To me it looks like a twisted with not very perky twists. Maybe its not supposed to be, but thats what it looks like. I would just do it regularly and then leave a much longer tail instead of snipping for the monogram on the front side. Make sense?

I agree if you were making the 3 inch twisted w/the templates(i have those also) maybe add a few more inches of ribbon to the suggested length and it should end up giving you quite a long tail perfect for monogramming.

This!!! It is not a true TBB and it is too spread out to be a BBB. Just add a little more ribbon for the tails.

Thanks for the help! She wants it kind of flat like that though so not SO twisted, i wonder if i sew/tie the opposite way if the loops wouldnt be as inward? Not sure if im making sense so i guess i should just try it and see

Instead of your "X" being so tall and skinny it would need to be wider and shorter. The "X" is what the center looks like before you cinch your center together.

ACK! Tabbi, I saw your post, and just remembered that I didn't PM you back! So so sorry - I'm not ignoring you I have to run to the post office, but I'll try to remember when I get back (it's been a little crazy here, and I don't think well on very little sleep )

Yes, it looks like a twisted bow but she also used 1.5 ribbon for the center knot and wrapped it really tight. It will usually flatten the bow a little. You can perk the loops back up with your fingers but she did not (Which would make it a little flatter).

Good luck!
