Someone else can probably help better, but I think what you are doing wrong is when you are wrapping it around the edges of the ribbon need to be exactly side by side, no overlapping.

I have to agree with PP, the overlapping is too much. I barely overlap mine. You may also want to try it with thinner ribbon and use the 1.5'' when it gets easier for you. I just find it easier to practice with the thinner ribbons before tackling the wider ribbon.

I use the one on here labeled pinwheel bow, which shows less overlapping than the one labeled pinwheel. I used tricks from both tuts though.. They are excellent tuts! The hard part for me learning them was overlapping, but I had such a hard time getting a good grip on it which would cause overlap. So maybe a sally's clip will help hold it together while you sew it. Also, my pinwheels came out a lot better without the template.. I just added an extra inch to my ribbon, that way I had more to work with, and trimmed off excess on the tails at the end.
