| | Re: really big bows
We wear the big bows down here in Georgia too. I tie some huge bows with 2-3" ribbon quite often. I don't really know how to tell you to tie it. I don't use templates. I do them by hand the same way I would a twisted, only I don't shape out the loops the same way. These bows are the norm around here.
I think it's funny when people say something about bows and Texas. My in laws live in Texas and whenever we go visit, they just swoon over my kids hair bows. My MIL thinks they're so cute and wonders says all the time that she just doesn't understand why the little girls in Texas don't wear hair bows. I know that we have rarely seen one when we were out there visiting. They live in the Houston area.
