I did starch one & did not starch one & the starch one did not sit so well on the head & the unstarched one was just way to floppy, so I added very little starch to one just on the front after it was attached to the barrette & it worked perfect. I may try a 8.5" template next time because this bow is HUGE!
That's the size I usually make with the 2 1/4" ribbon only mine are upside down from the way you make them.
