Default What is the purpose of a base/support bow?

Is it necessary for to have a base or support bow? What does it do for the bow? And how big should it be?

I think it's for looks.

I do both. If they are for pigtails than I definately have them. It gives the bow lift. If it's for a headband I don't tend to do it because I don't like the bow too big on the babies head.

It's just the style you prefer. I make mine 28" and my top is 23.5! It is your preference. Usually my flares are 5.5 to 6".

I've never heard of a base bow before? Is that like a double layer bow? Sorry to sound clueless, LOL.

I learnt of it on this site and TOTT instructions.
Free Instructions: Loopy Surround-a-Bow Surrounds Surround

If you scroll to the bottom, you will see the instructions to make a base bow.

Does the size of the base bow matters or it is just a personal taste? BTW, how is Ethan? How did the checkup go? I read your post and am really sorry to hear what's happening.

I never use a base bow either but they do look nice from everyone else's website...lol so i'm giving it a try too. I am trying the twisted bow but still can't get the hang of it. What do everyone do for a base bow? I like pinwheel and let me tell you my pinwheel don't really look like it either but to me it still looks good...lol but for a base bow? hmmm and I think my problem is I don't use 1 1/2 inch I use 7/8inch more maybe I should try the bigger and maybe it'll turn out better....who knows....

I like base bows too! I just never really know what size to have the top and bottom to make the bow compliment itself. Anyone have length they prefer?
