As the size goes, I like having the top bow 1/2" difference so the spikes can be seen better without them hanging over the bottom bow. It's a preference as lot of the ladies have said.
The loopies look to be a bit short so they don't come all the way around the top bow, but that could just be the picture. I tend to do my bows without the loopies.
I would also get my knot centered so a full star is viewed or instead of the stars do a stripe or solid. The stars are pretty for little spikes though.
Hope it helps!
That really does help... yes you are right about the loopies... i hate doing them. Not sure I am following you about the way the bottom bow should lay.
