Default Re: Firecracker/pom pom bows help!

the ones I make with ribbon, I only use 6 strips about 4 inches long. The ones I make with fabric, I use about 25-30 pieces. Using 18 strips of ribbon may make it heavy, but also, you need to sew through middle several times. I probably sew through more than I need to but I want to be sure it is secure. If you sew through the middle a couple more times, I bet they won't be flimsy anymore?! HTH!!
