Default Re: Ribbon Lengths ???

Thank You Cynthia, I've copied down that info, which helps tremendously.

I also FINALLY found some of the other info in the forum. (I knew it was here). I has mispelled lengths in my post - so my search wasn't showing up. I misplaced the info on my hardrive, in my quest to gain info so I could make bows for my grandaughter and my fur babies, that's why I was asking again. Trying to get organized here with all my info.

Here's what I found for boutique bows - to consolidate the info in one place for the newbies:

From Cynthia Tutus, Bows More Boutique/Butterfly bow instructions


1.5" Ribbon

4" Boutique = 28" of ribbon
4" Pinwheel = 23" of ribbon
3" Pinwheel= 18" of ribbon

7/8" ribbon

3.5" Boutique = 22.5" of ribbon
3 to 3.5" pinwheel = 19.5" of ribbon
2 to 2.5" pinwheel = 14" of ribbon

5/8" Ribbon

2" half pinwheel (only do one loop on each side) = 7" of ribbon
2.5" Pinwheel = 14" of ribbon

2.5" bow 19" using 7/8
3" bow 24" using 7/8

I leave 1.5" tail on my bows
