I'm not extremely worried about the messiness(as you can see😂) because the back of the bow will not show

When that's cooled, play around with the bows shape

Then with another piece of skinny fabric, I placed it in the middle of the bow to keep its shape in place (keep holding onto the middle strip for the next step)
