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

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.

You can also look on youtube and find videos of how to make twisted boutique bows.

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.
