I am reluctant to touch them.. I'll try and get past that

I made them all without tails, like yours, if you want to add tails I'd add 1 1/2-2 1/2 inches (totally personal preference!). Just by changine the length slightly, you can change the look to suit whatever you prefer. Please excuse my bows in the raw & I hope this explains my babbling a little better, lol!

Oh & the lengths of the ribbon I used for each bow is written underneath them.
Wow, there is a difference! I think I'll try making your middle one next. Thanks so much for posting this for us Christine ~ it's VERY helpful!
