Default Re: how to make a bow out of fabric

I've made tons of fabric bows since I have sewn for a zillion years. I agree that 2" isn't going to give you a very full bow. A tube will hide all the edges but it won't allow for a bow more than 1 1/2" wide at most. I would agree with the above to put several bows together for width and maybe add some organsa or tulle or something to bulk it up a little. I am just backward of everyone here. My background is fabric and I am going to ribbon. With all I have seen on this site, you would well be able to think of a great design and figure the fabric part. Let us know what you decide on and maybe some of the sewers can help with how to realize it.
