Default My first Bow attempt

bow.jpg

This is my first attempt using the TOTT's instructions and bow maker. Besides it being a little off center, does it look okay? Any suggestions.

The gg knot throws me off a bit...not sure what people usually use. Maybe satin or a smaller width of the double ruffle? Like here

Looks really good for your first bow! I have yet to try that ribbon yet.

I see what your saying. It actually seems to blend in better than the pic makes it look. But I will try some of thr double ruffle ribbon for the knot next time. Thanks for the input. I appreciate it!!!

I think I just have more loops on mine. I did use the bow maker. I really like it. It was well worth the money!!!

Thanks..and budsock is my maiden name. Stop laughing!!!! It's not funny. I always use it becuse there aren't many of us, so it's always open as a user name. Think about how I was made fun of growing up. At least I got to get rid of it. Now I'm Smith...I went from a funny, unique last name, to one of the most common. lol

It looks great for your first bow! It really does.

Also, I was an unusual maiden name, but now am common.
I was "La Motte" (I'm 31, and have NEVER met another one!) and married a "Price". I got made fun of too... Motts apple sauce and more...
I loved my maiden name, but love my hubby more! LOL
