Of all the things I’m asked when I teach classes, the most frequent question is almost always, “How do you tie those bows?” Or how about “I give up, will you tie my bow for me?” I’ve put together a quick video on tying a nice loopy bow. I think the biggest piece of information I have to share, is that it is not going to look great right off the bat. For me, the bow tying is all in the primping and preening of the bow. Adjusting the tails to go just where you want before you fully tighten things up. That, and start with a “generous” amount of ribbon….
I’ve shown how to adjust the bow so that you have one tail forward and one tail behind, and I’ve also shown how to adjust the bow so that both loops are up top, and both tails hang below.
Stay tuned for future videos on how to tie a “Cheater’s Bow” and how to create a “Tailored Bow.”
I hope this helps, and please let me know if you have any questions!
