My first bow this season is my
Christmas Stripe Bow
I am still practicing certain techniques and still learning.
Also, all my pictures were taken at night. Sorry for the dark quality of the pictures. Some times that’s the only time you can get stuff done. 🙂
The first bow is the Side Loop Bow technique.
I used Red Double Faced Satin in 7/8″. I made two Side Loop Bows and then crossed them together.
The second bow is the Twisted Boutique Bow technique.
I used Red/White/Silver Christmas Stripe ribbon in 7/8″.
The third bow is the Twisted Boutique technique.
I used Red Solid Sheer ribbon in 5/8″.
I tried to make this bow smaller than the previous bow, but somehow it ended up about the same size. Doing it again, I would make this bow about two inches smaller than the bow behind it.
To stack my bows, I did not glue the bows together. Instead, I put my needle through all three bows and then tightened my thread.
I used Red Solid Grosgrain in 3/8″ for the center knot and to line the clip.
Now I just have to find a new owner for this bow. 🙂
