What length did you cut your ribbon?
I am so confused...I thought the bow in that video was just a boutique bow. Are you saying that is a twisted bow?

Yep. For a boutique bow you gotta bring 'em around town. On all those loops you want to get a good bit of roundness and you can hold them into place as you fold them to complete the bow. Then as you pull your bow back out at the end it will be loopy.
For a stacked bow you're doing okay to start. Just make sure you like how symmetrical they are/ how big your loops are when choosing your ribbon width.

Bows are never as easy as they look.. until one day you just get it:P

Oh I agree. Everyone calls it something different but at least now I know I was making it all along! I've researched a lot and practiced a lot lol but I guess the sites I used had it listed as a "boutique" not a twisted and I keep seeing you ladies talk about the twisted bow & I was so curious lol

Thanks for straightening me out

I know those bows. Kylie is a fellow Aussie bowmaker. I'm not sure if she ventures onto hipgirls much anymore. Her bows are lovely. My only advice to you is to watch lots of youtube tutorials and just practice practice practice. It takes time and lots of patience. You will get it eventually.

I would highly recommend that you get the No Bow No Go TNT Top Notch Templates. I think they're a lifesaver for getting started Good luck. I love your Cinderella ribbon, btw!

You were given great advice. I've been watching you tube videos and searching for tuts forever. But I watched a youtube video one day and it just clicked. I mean I've watched alot of videos.

There are different methods to making this bow. Hairhardware has a youtube page that shows how to make severals different style bows. They use the figure 8 method. I like the method from the video above. I've tried the freehand as well. But I always have slipage. But trust me it will click. This is my favorite bow and I had to learn how to make it!! HTH!
