Really cute with the purple bow and the crown on top of the bow! Any little "princess" would love it!

maybe i need more coffee . . . 'cause i'm trying to figure out where the ends of the ribbon are hiding!

and is this the front or the back of the bow?

thanks!

Nicely done.

I have that some tiara slider and I used it with 1.5" hot pink grosgrain to make a simple pinwheel bow to commemorate the royal wedding.

It's a closed loop so the two ends are sewn together (or you can fuse them with a woodburner). You see where one side of the X crosses over the other? The sewn together ends are underneath there so you don't see it at all. That is the front the way I normally make it. It can be flipped over so instead of seeing an X you see two horizontal pieces like so =. Either side can be face up when folding the bow, but for the style the OP wanted, the X would the front of the bow.
