I cut the fabric at about 2.5 inches. My daughter is only 2 and I don't want to overwhelm her little head- plus she has super fine hair that wouldn't support a huge ball of fabric. i am for sure going to try out the ribbon raggies... and maybe an all sheer one- just for funsies! I sell my bows out of a super busy consignment shop and it seems like, at least at this particular shop, the funkier, the better! So, I can play with it and have fun with it and not worry about how "strange" it looks. Also, to the poster that makes the raggie bows with "junk" Those are the coolest looking bows! I would have never thought to add korker ribbon to it! In everyone elses experience, do your raggies sell better on pony tail holders or clips (alligators, frenchy's???) Thanks ya'll!
I've been wanting to get the actual raggie tut but I fear that it wouldn't suit my needs. I only make bows and hair accessories for my granddaughter, who just turned 3 a week ago. She is very tiny so a raggie (which is 5" across?) would almost cover her entire head! lol They're adorable, but I just can't see how I could make them work.

I finished my ribbon pompom bow yesterday based on the free google tut. I'm happy with how it turned out. I did add more ribbon than the tut called for, but I frequently do things like that. I put it on a french barrette.
