Default Re: How to know which ribbons to purchase?!

If you are only making them for you DD, then I would suggest finding someone who sells in one yard cuts. There are plenty on Etsy, and I'm sure some Hip Girls probably do to. For my girls I made Pinwheels in all primary and Pastel Colors when I first started and evolved from there. Depending on how old your daughter is (or how big you want your bows) I would probably start with 7/8" ribbon. I prefer putting all my bows on alligator clips. I would suggest partially lining them, and for that you use 3/8" ribbon. To line a clip you only need about 4.5" of ribbon.

Did that help at all?
