Default What ribbon width for what bow size?

Hiya!

I am not sure if anyone has asked this before, but what ribbon width is suitable for what bow size? Eg: If I were to use a 3/8 ribbon, what is the usual bow size you would make?

I am curious about:
3/8 inch
5/8 inch
7/8 inch
1.5 inch

Thanks!

Cheers
Angela

Hiya!

Yes, I found that link previously. But it doesn' tell me what ribbon width is suitable for what sized bows. Eg: I tried to make a 4inch bow with a 3/8 ribbon, and it looks very pathetic. I am not sure if I was being over ambitious with the size or I am simply using the wrong technique (I was using the boutique bow method)?

Cheers
Angela

With a 3/8 ribbon width, it can only go so big especially if you're wanting the final bow width to be 4", imho.

not sure if I can help you, b/c I was going to use the measurements that were posted in that link...but:

3/8- 1.5-2.5" bow
5/8- 2-3.5" bow
7/8- 2-4" bow
1.5- 3-6" bow

I think those are approx. size bows I would make in those widths of ribbon. . .hth

Just my opinion, but I always feel that YOU should use what looks good to YOU! After all, it's about YOU being creative and making things, right?
