Default Mini tails down bow?

IMG-20120216-02285.jpg
I received a couple of these bows from a lady at my baby shower. They are my favorite bows, but I just can't figure out what they are called or how to make them. I've found tuts for a basic bow and tails down, but neither gave the length of ribbon I needed for this size. Any suggestions?

Not sure but here's what I think.

Two tuxedo bows side by side on top of a small single strip with the ends v-cut (the "tail"), all wrapped together.

For a 2" bow. I'm guessing two 4 1/2" to 4 3/4" strips and a 1 1/2" to 1 3/4" strip with v-cuts.

Use the link below for how to make the tuxedo bows. Steps 2-3, not sure you need to do any more than that because the bow doesn't look like it's folded the way the rest of the tutorial shows. If you scroll all the way to the bottom (step 14) it shows you what two of them wrapped together looks like.

The girl who gave them to me said she made them using that!! I tried it the way the other lady suggested but haven't been able to get the tails to do right. Still trying!! I can make the larger version of this bow, but I need these little ones for my preemie!

Take your bow size (2 inches) and multiply times 4, then add your tails (I do 1 1/2 inches each, so 3 inches). So 8 +3 = 11 inches. Fold into a continuous loop (almost like rolling) 2 inches long. Put your pin in the middle and spread the loops. Put your clip across the middle and sew or tie. Cover center with ribbon knot or flat

Aww all my babies have been preemies so I know how they need everything just a wee bit smaller

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!
