Default Pigtail Cheer Bows

I have about 18 pigtail bows that I need to make for our All Star Tiny team. I know that I am going to use 2.25 inch base ribbon but I'm not sure how long to make them. The girls range from age 3-4. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am attaching a photo of the competition bows that I made for our Youth and Juniors. This was my first attempt at making cheer bows

How long did you make your other bows? If you did 30 inches for those, I would do 24 inches for the smaller ones.

I use 18" of 2 1/4" ribbon for my pigtail sets. Cute competition bows.

Thank you. Getting into the cheer bow business was totally an accident. I offered to make the girls bows to wear at practice and the coaches said "well, if we love yours we will use them for competition" and that was that...LOL

Most stories are similar. I made bows for my daughter, which turned into game bows for team, then on to competition bows.

Today, I make bows for Pop Warner, High School and Allstar gyms. Good quality bows at decent prices are hard to find. Make sure you do not under sell yourself. Nice bows are worth more than one thinks.

Congrats on the order and good luck in the future.
