Thanks so much!
I went ahead and tried last night anyway, except I had'nt thought it through before I cut the fabric and ribbon, so I limited my loops to 7.5" across instead, otherwise my tails might have been too short.
But thx, I appreciate the response!
Are you cutting yours 28"? Do you find more coaches/teams that want longer tails? I have had more teams requesting shorter tails that are stiff than the longer/floppy. This is an exception to tiny mites/smalls, they seem to like the floppy tails in their faces, but the tails just about double the size of their heads, it seems... Just my $.02
