Default Loopy Bows

Can anyone tell me how to make loopy bows with korkers maribou and other stuff in them? I know how to make the traditional plain loopy bow but I want to make one of the fabulous funky ones. Do you just glue or sew the pieces in after the loops are made? Do you use less loops and not make them so full? Does anything I'm saying make any sense? Help, please.

I am not sure as i have never done any real full ones.. I made some that i took strips and looped them leaving the ends up over each loop and then trimmed them but i think what people do is loop everything you want in the bow then go back and clip some of the parts that are looped allowing them to stick up.. trim and heatseal...HTH and hope you understand me.. I know what i mean but not sure if it is clear..

When you make your loops these extra pieces will go between the loops. So, to have a piece of double ruffle added you will just take a strip of it, place it behind the loop you make and just wrap your thread around the center of it. Basically your strip should now look like a "V." Imagine the V is your strip of whatever you choose to add to the loopy bow. Then you can take each tip of the V and pull to either side to fluff up the bow when finished.

I hope I helped some!!

Makes perfect sense. Thanks so much. So, I would need to put a little space bettwen my loops or not make as many, right?

You can still make as many loops as you like. One loopy bow I bought has about 10 loops then there is tons of extra pieces in between each loop. No need to add space. You want everything pushed close together to help give it a full look when you are done. Make a loop and wrap then push loop up and keep adding pieces and making loops. You do want everything nice and tight.
Here are two bows I bought. The first has about ten loops but tons of extra stuff added between the loops. (Blue one) It is on a smaller clip.

The second (red one) has about 4 loops with stuff added but not pushed together. You can really see the difference in the two of them.

Sorry they are not the best photos. I stopped typing and grabbed my camera!

that sounds liek a much more secure way of holding the pieces in place than the way i have seen which advocates gluing them in...i have not tried any because i am leary of the pieces being able to be pulled off and do not want to use e6000 that much. i am going to have to try this way now, thanks so much for sharing

You are welcome. I have received much help from all the ladies here, so I do love to help any when I can.

Yeah, I wouldn't glue the pieces in, as they would probably come out.
