Making a Bow

Here is a real time HD video tutorial on how to make an 8 loop bow with a hanging ribbon. 


Making the bow and hanging ribbon can be tricky and if you do the steps in the wrong order you will have to undo it and start over. On your long pearl ended straight pin put the bead and/or other embellishment first, then the bead cap or sequin base, then the hanging ribbon, then the bow. Use good quality ribbon for the best looking bows.

Prairie Creations Ornaments has another wonderful bow tutorial. This is a different style of bow than mine but also looks very nice.
