Default Perfect size bow for girls

Ok. So I've thought all along the 5" bows I make are perfect for babies (my 1 year old wears them) and for older girls too. However, I was asked today if I could make larger bows for girls in 2nd and 3rd grade. I'm not really sure what size to say that would be.

Do you have any suggestions on a style and size more appropriate?

I have a link in my sig. to my Etsy shop if you want to see the style and size I already offer. Thanks!!!!!!!!

Maybe you can ask the person who asked you, that way you don't have to guess?!

Thats what I do, ask them what do they want it works out good for me.

Yes for sure ask them. Or if you see girls with bows about that age ask the size.

I actually don't know the person who asked.LOL My sister-in-law works at a school and she took a basket of bows to sell in the teacher's break room. One of the teachers asked her if I could make larger bows for a girl in 2nd or 3rd grade. I've made 6" bows before but they are HUGE. I may try to make up a few in my most popular colors and send those with her next time along with my normal bows. She did sell 13 bows just by setting them in the break room with my business cards and an envelope for their money. Not too bad. I told her I would have to add her to my payroll!

Not to Shabby! I have a cousin that takes a basket of goodies into work about once every 2 weeks, and we usually do pretty well!

To me 6" is way big, but to each there own. I would have SIL ask what size she is after, so there isn't any guessing and your not wasting time and energy trying to figure it out.

Good idea! I figure if I made bows much bigger than what I do now I would need to buy some of the 2.25" ribbon and I really don't feel like making another investment right now. The size I make sells really well already.
