Default Need to figure out how to make this cheer bow

Hi everyone. First I want to say how helpful I have found everyone's posts. I am completely new to making bows and I have been asked to make some cheer bows for some cheerleaders.

I got asked to make a specific style with three different widths of ribbon and it doesn't look like the ribbons are attached. I looked for a tutorial and I didn't find anything so I was hoping for some help.

I attached the picture.

Thank you!

Well, the hardest part is the about the knot.
It is an excellent one int he pic u showed.

Get the position where u want the knot be fixed. Sew it with needle if neccessary.
And then slowly tie the three-layers ribbon. Take it slowly.

Cut the ribbon after u finish the tying.

Try to make a neat knot with some spare ribbon first before u actually do this one.

Good luck!

It is not much different than any other cheer bow....get your three ribbon sizes: looks like 3" black, 2.5 white and 1 1.2 gold. Cut them all the same length stack them on top on each other then fold in half to get your center. I would use a spot of hot glue to glue them together at the center.....then just bow like you would any other cheer bow. For the center, cut it about 1" longer than you normally would, knot it in the center....make sure that the ribbon does not twist and you do not need to pull it hard, just enough to get a nice looking knot. From the picture, it looks like the maker used the same gold ribbon that is on the top of the bow, folded it to make it narrower then made the knot....
I hope this information is helpful.....Good Luck!

I finally did it. I made the bow and really did appreciate everyone's suggestions. I have had it done for a little while but it recently got approval with the coach. She just had a few suggestions that I do agree with. I heard she is super picky so thankfully she approves. I guess cheer coaches can be picky though.

Anyway...

I cut the ribbon 30 inches long and then before assembling the bows I cut the v-notches on all of them and then used fray check. I was worried it would discolor the ribbon, it didn't but I would test it first.

Then I glued the ribbons together at the center point with the widest on the botton and smallest on top. Just a small strip.

I used a cardboard template that was 8 inches wide. The coach wanted a wide bow. I put more glue on the back side of the bow between the layers so they wouldn't overlap on the edges and I did it in the back so it would be less noticeable.

Cinched the middle with a zip tie and did some adjustments and then attached the pony.

The knot gave me troubles because I didn't have anything smaller than 1.5" ribbon. I kind of folded it in half and then knotted it.

Then some stiffy and it was done.

I use the 3/8, 5/8 and 7/8 (depending on ribbon size) heat n bond strips to stack the layers. It makes them stiffer as well.

Nice job. It's pretty!!!
And thank you sooo much for your sharing. I can learn a lot from it.

And really happy for you. Although the couch was picky, you got her nicely. Really a good job. Yayyyyy!
