Default Ribbon Lengths ???



Is there a rule of thumb for us newbies that tells us what length to cut a piece of ribbon to make bows, (e.g.)

2" Bow - what length when using

1-1/2" wide ribbon
7/8" wide ribbon
5/8" wide ribbon
3/8" wide ribbon

3" Bow - ditto
4" Bow - ditto
5" Bow - ditto

What about how long to cut the ribbon for spikes?

2" Bow - what length when using
1-1/2" wide ribbon
7/8" wide ribbon
5/8" wide ribbon
3/8" wide ribbon

3" Bow - ditto
4" Bow - ditto
5" Bow - ditto

What about loops?

2" Bow - what length when using
1-1/2" wide ribbon
7/8" wide ribbon
5/8" wide ribbon
3/8" wide ribbon

3" Bow - ditto
4" Bow - ditto
5" Bow - ditto

This is my frustration every time. Not knowing how long to cut the ribbon

I've wasted more ribbon (well not actually wasted - I save everything that I don't use - within reason of course).

I did to a search, but didn't find much info, there was a mention about a Ribbon Recipe forum, but can't find that either.

I appreciate any help

Thank You Cynthia, I've copied down that info, which helps tremendously.

I also FINALLY found some of the other info in the forum. (I knew it was here). I has mispelled lengths in my post - so my search wasn't showing up. I misplaced the info on my hardrive, in my quest to gain info so I could make bows for my grandaughter and my fur babies, that's why I was asking again. Trying to get organized here with all my info.

Here's what I found for boutique bows - to consolidate the info in one place for the newbies:

From Cynthia Tutus, Bows More Boutique/Butterfly bow instructions


1.5" Ribbon

4" Boutique = 28" of ribbon
4" Pinwheel = 23" of ribbon
3" Pinwheel= 18" of ribbon

7/8" ribbon

3.5" Boutique = 22.5" of ribbon
3 to 3.5" pinwheel = 19.5" of ribbon
2 to 2.5" pinwheel = 14" of ribbon

5/8" Ribbon

2" half pinwheel (only do one loop on each side) = 7" of ribbon
2.5" Pinwheel = 14" of ribbon

From BellaLuPretties
https://hipgirlclips.com/forums/how-...nght-reqd.html 2nd post

2" bow 17" using 5/8 ribbon
2.5" bow 19" using 7/8
3" bow 24" using 7/8
4" bow 29" using 1.5"

I leave 1.5" tail on my bows

From Ldelzer
https://hipgirlclips.com/forums/how-...nght-reqd.html 5th post

18 inch 7/8
24 inch 1.5
30 inch 1.5
12 inches for 3/8 tiny bows.


From Lynn

Thank you ladies for sharing your knowledge. It is greatly appreciated.
