Bows - Here comes a video!

Happy Sunday! Ok, I can't believe it myself, but I made a video. With audio. Yes, you will hear me trying to explain how to make a double bow. I got some requests (a long time ago - and I am really sorry it took me so long. Please forgive me!) on how I make double bows like this one:

And here comes a tutorial. I hope you won't fall asleep watching it! I am talking really slowly, but I have to think too much about what I want to say and how to say it. And if I will ever make another video, I will have to work on where to place the camera, too. Ok. Here it comes:

Are you still awake? Like I said, I learned how to make a pretty single bow from sweet Aimes. Just go here to watch her video. 

And here is another project using a single bow:

I hope your weekend is beautiful! Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Fabby video, Vanessa!!! I love hearing your voice (not in a creepy way LOL!) your English is fantastic and so is your tutorial. I think you've taken my tutorial a step further with those gorgeous double bows - might have to try my hand at those myself now!
Oooh and thanks for linking up my video too (though you really didn't have to of course!)

Thank you so much for the great tutorial!!Having the option to use my fingers makes the method "portable" so I can really do it anywhere even with out the pencils!And by the way your english is beautiful!

Wunderbar, Vanessa! Du hast das so ruhig erklärt, einfach toll. Ich glaube, ich wäre vor Nervosität vom Stuhl gefallen. Diese Doppelschleife werde ich nachher auch gleich mal ausprobieren. Ich würde mich freuen, wenn Du uns noch mehr Videos zeigen würdest, denn Du machsst das wirklich super. :)

Ganz liebe Grüße, Tina

Your command of the English language is better than many of my friend's here in the States! And with what we would think of as an accent, so very pretty! I will defiantely try that double bow! I struggle with my bows all of the time!
