Smile What size ribbon?

I'm so new to all of this and was wondering what size ribbons do you use the most to make bows? Is 1 1/2" or 7/8" the most popular?
Thanks,
LeAnn

It's really just a matter of personal preference and the type of bow that you are wanting to make. I use everything from 3/8" to 1.5".

Maybe these past polls will help, really it's a personal preference and depends on the type of bows you will be making.

Hey..it depends on what you plan on making. For the headbands/ribbon sculptures and lining clips you would need 3/8th. 5/8th is good for smaller bows for toddlers. The 7/8ths and 1 1/2 are good for the bigger bows and layered bows. It all depends on what you want to try to make first.

For me, I consider bows that are made with 5/8 ribbon to be small, 7/8-medium, and 1 1/2-large.
