Your bow looks like it was made 5/8 using template 2
but here is an example of how they turn out using the templates, it's the ONLY way I can make them...

this one is 7/8 ribbon with template 3


and this is 5/8 ribbon template 3


I have a few colors in 5/8 and would be happy to make you some if you'd like! Just send me a message!
Ohh, yours are so pretty! I'm going to try the way the other lady suggested and if that doesn't work, I think I'm going to give in and buy a no bow no go. I keep hearing how awesome it is, so I think I'll give it a try! Thanks! Are you on etsy?

Default Re: Mini tails down bow?

Hi,
I tried it last night and my estimates were off. I ended up with a 1.75" bow and the "tail" was originally to short. I'd try 5" or a little bit longer for the tuxedo bows and then 2 1/2" for the "tail".
I also tried it using the girly things tails down bow tutorial (I can't access the site from work so I can't give the exact link). I used 13" and that gave me a 2" bow. If you want longer tails you use 13 1/2 or 14".

I'll attach my results. The green is the 1.75" I made using my first suggestion, only change I made is that I used a 2" strip to make the tail. The hello kitty I made using the girly things tutorial, it was harder to get the loops even. The tails were originally longer but I suck at making V-cuts, so I wasted some of the length

The template ones are very pretty.

Ohhh, yours are very pretty too! I will try with those measurements! I suck at v-cuts too..I sometimes ruin otherwise perfect bows trying to make the v-cut!
