Default Getting started!

I've finally managed to get the money together for my BBM templates and have ordered them but i'd just like some tips on what else i might need.
I've been dabbling in bows for a while (& i'm a seamstress by trade) so i've got quite a bit of stock like ribbons, dst, glue gun, thread, scissors etc.

I really want to have a go at making my daughter an OTT bow like this one (found at but not the same theme or colours - just love the shape and vrumph of it! Will my new templates come with a guide on how to make something like this? What other bits might i need - i see feathers but not sure what type, is it on a headband? what size ribbon etc. I'd like to get things in so that when my templates get here (shipping to the uk) i'll be able to get straight on! Excited much? & this model is so cute - my baby girl has beautiful eyes too!

Thanks! xc

Looks like 3 diff size ribbons 5/8, 7/8 & 1.5. The feather is an ostrich puff.

Good luck!

I haven't made a bow yet, though I do have the templates from Little Pink Ladybug.

But as far as I know, even with a template, it takes quite a bit of practice to get an OTT bow to look fabulous

But I'm sure you can do it!!
