Joanns and WM both carry this brand of grosgrain. I would start with 7/8" ribbon.
Learn the basic boutique bow first before venturing out to harder bows like the twisted boutique. If you have any questions let me know...I will be more than happy to help you through this.
Aw Ronnie thanks sooo much for offering your help
I feel so much better now. Yes i have both Walmart and Joanns. Actually Walmart is closer to me than Michaels. i just thought that maybe i wouldve found the ribbon easier at Michaels, but if You say walmart has some, im going to check them out first
