Hi! I think it would look lovely if you make the bow really big. The ones I saw on Etsy have really big flowers/bows and they were placed on the side of the mommy's belly.

I just did one of these and I suggest Double face satin its soft on both sides for the part that will be around mommy's tummy and a big tails down bow would look great.. the one I did was for a boy and she didn't want flowers or anything on it and it needed to be rockstar theam... it was hard ...

She gave me some ribbon that she wanted me to make the bow out of, the ribbon is 7/8, I think im gonna have to buy a bigger size ribbon because a big bow will look funny out of 7/8's ribbon

She absolutely wants me to use the ribbon she gave me because it says "its a girl" on it, i dont know what kind of bow i can make with this ribbon. if she uses a small bow for her pictures it will look funny if i make a big bow out of this 7/8s ribbon. She needs it by saturday!!!!!!!!

What if you place a layer of 1.5" ribbon behind the printed one in a matching color. Then you can make a much bigger bow and still showcase the ribbon she picked out.

What if you used that ribbon for around her waste, made a nice flower corsage in matching colors, then used that ribbon to make a bow as an embellishment in the flower corsage and leave the tails a little longer so you can read It's a girl. Here is one I made for myself and my fat belly too!
