Default Twisted Boutique Bow.. Help!

So I've been making bows for a little over a year now, and I haven't ever been able to do the twisted boutiques... I don't know why, they just never turn out the way I want them... I've had a lot of requests for them lately, so decided it's time I finally learn these. These are my first two.. trying to use the figure 8 method because I don't like the tails. They look REALLY different from each other and neither one looks "right" so maybe someone can tell me what is wrong with them, lol! First of all, will say these are using 22" of 1 1/2" ribbon. TIA! Oh also, I'm not sure which side is supposed to be the "front". Thanks!

I never had any luck with the figure eight method so I really can not help you out, but this is the way I make mine..... hope this helps. Also you can make a template out off cardboard, I did!!! Good luck & practice, practice, practice!!!!!

I think your loops just need to be adjusted so they have the right shape. I use the figure 8 and this is what mine look like before I shape the loops. Just stick your fingers in the loops to stretch them out a little and push them in near the middle so they get that curved shape. Does that make any sense?

I agree!! Don't be afraid to fiddle with the loops once you've reached this point. It's almost necessary to get it right!! You are almost there!!
