Wrap a square/rectangular sheet of foam in the matirial you need, glue it togeter from the back like wrapping a present.

Then fold it like a fan in the center to make it look gathered like a real bow.

Then while keeping the fan folds pinched together, wrap a strip of cloth around the center of your bow to hold it in place.This part is supposed to look like the center knot part of a regular bow.

The foam keeps the bow from drooping! I hope that's what your asking about! Is it like a sailor scout bow or something?
heres what mine looked like...

what i do is pretty much that without the foam, so it has openings in the top and bottom like a real bow would. you can always stiffen with horsehair or interfacing if you are worried about it drooping, but typically it is not much of a problem, at least on the bows i have made.
