  2. Starting from the top, she tugs the loose ends of the bow to loosen the bows and pulls the sash, laying it out straight at the side on the table.
  3. Put the entire white sash lying them straight on the right side of the frame and the entire red sash on the left side of the frame.
  4. Starting from the top, release the knots by pulling the white sash with the left hand and the blue sash with the right hand.
  5. Separate them.
  6. Lay the sashes straight at the sides of the frames.
  7. When the Directress has finished untying the bow, she then shows how to tie up the bows again, starting from the top.
  8. Make a knot for the sashes.

There are two ways to tie a bow:

  • First: Starting from the top, make a small loop with the red sash and then slot the white sash through the hole formed by the white and red sash.
  • Second: Make two loops with each hand and cross the loop and slip one of the loop into the hole formed in between. Pull both the loops tightly.
