I'll be right back with that bow.
Ok, here it is. Not sure if you sew or not, but I am not a sewer and I actually pulled this off. I used some fleece material but you could use any. And I also made it smaller. I hope this helps. I think her bows are soooo cute. If this is not what you're looking for, I would just do the tuxedo bow. Thats what Minnie wears. ANd if you're doing the ears and all, a tuxedo bow will look just fine.
Thank you for being brave enough to read through that mess! The hat is done except for the bow, so I could maybe try my hand at a twisted... (No, never made one before; the only bow so far is the pathetic-looking tuxedo that I already made for the hat. It really looks so skimpy against the ears.) I'll see if I can post a pic of it tomorrow.

Those Etsy bows are adorable, but I can only work with what I have in the house, which is the 1.5 gg and the 7/8 satin ribbon--plus one of the Etsy bows would probably be too heavy on the cardstock hat base...

Thanks for your input!
