Default figure 8 method

Hi i have tried over and over again to do the twisted boutique bow. I have the nbng tnt and instructions but i just can't get it to look right. All other bows i tried worked.
So what is the figure 8 method please i tried googling but to no avail

Thanks in advance

Nat

I've tried this bow with the figure 8 method and with templates. This bow is just a PITA (for me, anyway). They say practice, practice, practice but I've mostly given up. Good LUck!!!

It took me well over a year to perfect my TBB. I don't use templates, just freehand with the figure 8 method...but practice deff makes it better/perfect. I think overall they are just pain-in-the-butt bows. Just don't give up on it, you'll be so proud once you get them the way you want it to look!

ETA: here's a link to instructions using the figure 8 method, I want to say they use to have different pictures than that.

That has been there for a long time. Glad you were able to figure it out using that method. I like to have a small tail on my TBB so I do them the traditional way. There is another way that is similar to the traditional but I had so much trouble with it. It was off of Totts.

I haven't tried any other way than the figure 8 so far. I thought why mess with it if I'm doing ok with how I'm doing now kwim? I'll branch out to new methods eventually though.
