Default Have a few basic questions..

I have tried, over and over to make a basic bow. Sounds simple enough, but for some reason, i cannot get them to look right.

So, because I cannot make a simplistic basic bow, I cannot make the layered bows or the bows w/the wraps...

So i stuck w/the basic (NON funky) loopy bows and corkers (which I despise now)...

I have the vinyl clear ones..but they arent really cute right now IMO..so I need to figure out how to make them cute...(have great ideas from you all here so I'll work on it..)

So, what I am needing is a SUPER SIMPLISTIC way to make a basic bow..,like these:

Basic bow
Basic boutique bow
http://mibelloboutique.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=42

so that maybe I can jump off and finally make the OTTB ones my girls really want.. like these:

http://www.beckysbowboutique.com/home1.html

and I know..I'm sooo not even remotely close to talented like you all, like I've said before, these are just for my girls and maybe a couple friends girls if I get ok enough w/them...

TIA..I REALLY appreciate you helping me..

I have been trying to master the bow for years now and just can't get it. I would suggest getting templates. I have heard great things about Little Pink Ladybugs templates. Goodluck to you!!!

This is a really nice and helpful blog. I do recomend the NBNG templates. They are really great and come w/pages and pages of helpful instructions.

One thing to try would be to purchase templates. There are some good ones out there. I have the Brilliant Bowmaker from littlepinkladybug and it is great, but nobownowgo.com has some as well and though I have never tried them I hear they are good as well.

The Gator Bite is a great tool. You can make your own templates - search YouTube and then use the Gator Bite to tie them off = super simple IMO! HTH!

Ah, Don't give up! You will get it. It can be frustrating at first but keep on KEEPING ON (So cheesy...lol)

There are plenty of free tutorials out there on google, here and on youtube.

Best of luck!
