    I used to be a cheerleader and I got very good at tying a bow (for hair ribbons). The first step I did just like the first step in tying a shoe, to secure the ribbon around the elastic (or on whatever you're tying). Then, I would make the two loops and pretty much do what Martha's link shows - but, for me, it was important to do the same side on top for both steps. So, if I did left over right for step 1, I'd do left over right for step 2, which would kind of cause the whole bow to flip over as you tighten. It doesn't make sense in writing, but try it. Also, I'm always very careful to keep the loops small as I tighten, because you can always make them bigger after the fact but it's hard if they're much bigger than the tails to get the proportions right.

    Who knew it was such a science? :lol:
