Althought I don't personally like the look of double layered bows not being secured to each other there are those that do. None of my customers have ever requested them to be like that, I make more of the mystique, sequins, wave, rhinestone bows.
I am TOTALLY with you on that look for most cheer bows! I just make so many of them for my daughter that I thought she needed a few of the different look, too.
