Default Re: Any ideas on how to make this cheer bow?

I looks to me like it is two elongated leaf shapes lined up next to each other and maybe sewn together at the center.

The silver base may be fused to some sort of white fabric and then the red sequin middle is just the sequin fabric alone or fused to iron-on vinyl. Either way, you can see the silver sequins through the red.

My personal opinion, I would go with a standard cheer bow (lots of good instructions on this forum). Unless the cheerleaders are young and the style bow you're asking about is being used for pigtails, I would recommend going with a standard tails down cheerbow.

That is just my opinion.

If you have any thoughts, let me know. I could use the help brainstorming!!
