Default Re: how to measure the ribbon...

loops 19"
spikes cut 5 at 4.5" each

this makes a bow that measures approxx 3.5" to go smaller I subtract 2" from each measurement ( spikes I make 4")for a 3" bow
to go larger I add 2" ( spkies 5") for a 4" bow

I find if I don't measure and mark out then my bows don't look right!
Thanks for sharing the measurement advice!
