An enormous thank you to anyone who responds - thanks for your time and help!!!

1. Best Tutorial is No Bow No Go
2. 7" or 8" across with 6" tails
3. Definately use a pony o. No metal is allowed on most competitive cheer squads.
4. To get a cheer bow to stand up, you need to place the ponytail of the cheerleader in the center of her head. (she will look like a unicorn)
5. There are lots of great tips within in this forum. Run a search under cheer bows, sequin ribbon, cheer bow care, etc. It should pull up a bunch of great information.

When all else fails, ask one of the lovely ladies on the forum. We are all here to help! GOOD LUCK!
