Zutter Bow-it-All V2.0 Tutorial - Double-Loop Double-Layer Bow

This is the 3rd post for the day.  Please scroll down for the new challenge and the winners from the last challenge.

Hi everyone.  Bonnie here swinging in with a new Bow-it-All V2.0 tutorial featuring some great ribbon styles from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I'm am asked quite a bit about how I make my favorite double-loop double-layer bow, so I've made a video.  Now you can make them yourself!

Along with the bow tutorial, I talk a little bit about ribbon selection.  The type of ribbon that you use will greatly affect the finished look of your bows.  My top 2 picks for this particular bow are Delicate Stitched Satin and 5/8" Plaid Ribbon.  Both are lightweight, but still have a nice amount of body which will give your bow a nice tight center and pretty puffy loops that hold their shape.  

If you've been working with your Bow-it-All and you're not quite happy with your results, please get some of this ribbon and try again.  It could make all the difference.  Once you practice and refine your skills, you can tie beautiful bows with ANY ribbon style, but why frustrate yourself when you are learning?!
