Default Is this a good cheer bow???

I've had a girl ask me to make 4 cheer bows in red, black and white. That was all she gave me for direction. I don't know where to even start. When I cheered we just tied ribbon in our hair! She needs them by this upcoming Saturday...

What do you think?? I need criticism!!! Thanks! Oh and do you think I should use the iron on webbing to attach the bottom portion of the red ribbon to the black so it will stay straight?? Oh and this is not done...I have the middle clipped to the back so I can redo it if I need to!

I love your bows but I can't figure out how to get the red ribbon to stay on top when layering them together. I was using the "awareness" type fold...if that makes sense and it keeps turning the red away from me! I guess I could put red on both sides of the black and then it wouldn't matter!

You are awesome! Those bows are great! I'm glad to see you on here! How is that baby?

Thanks so much! I've always wanted to mark and sew but didn't know how! I'm going to try it after lunch and then I'll show a pic of what I managed! Thanks again!!!

I coach my daughters cheer team and our colors are red, white and black also. What I did was made a black solid colored cheer bow and then took red and white ribbon and tied it together. After I tied it together, I used that as my center knot. I did the main bow in black because I thought it would be a lot easier to keep clean. I hope this helps.

That is a really good idea! I did that with a Christmas bow I made and it was cute. I'll try that too. I'm only selling them for about $5 so I don't wanna lose money on it!

Does she want 4 different variations on black/red/white or 4 of the same?

I think Lorraine is right that most of it is personal preference. Around me, shorter tails are more popular and I do everything on a pony-o, no barrettes.
