Default FINALLY! I made a twisted boutique bow

& it sort of looks like its supposed to! I have had the TOTTS directions for months now. I tried & tried this bow following the video instructions and NEVER could get it. Dh even tried it for me & he almost got it, but not quite. After giving up at least once a month, I finally read on this forum, that the "by hand" instructions might be easier. So, I thought, "yeah, right" but decided to look 'em up and try any way. I got it on the first try! It's not perfect and my tails look awkward to me, but it's definitely easier for me. Thank you awesome ladies! I never thought I would get it. Now I'm tying away, practice, practice, practice. I feel like the master of my universe. (whatever that means)
Woohoo! Gotta go try that again. I'll post a pic, when I get one taken, too excited to stop now!

A tip for any other ladies who have these instructions & can't master this bow. Go dig out your cd, find the .pdf file and try it by hand without the bowmaker. It worked for me.

I'm glad I am not the only one a little disappointed. I got mine a few days ago and my bows still suck delete computer and insert bowmaker LOL. I guess I just assumed the instructions would make the bows on their own

How funny, I was just thinking about this. I haven't been able to get it right yet. I tried it again with the bow maker and it looks like crap. I think I tried it by hand once and it looked terrible too. Maybe I will try it again by hand.

I love my TOTTS instructions but that particular bow is one that I couldn't get even on the bowmaker because you're not using the bowmaker to actually size it like the other bows do, kwim?
THAT makes sense....yay!

Off to try....again.
