I am not sure, I don't measure it. I usually make them and cut it off. I just eyeball the loops and "know" where to start and stop. I will measure it next time and let you know. I think I use a little more than the formula calls for.

I think these come out best w/ a two sided ribbon because inside the loops and that would be the back of the ribbon.

I bought her instructions also. Yours beats mine. I tried my first one the other nightand failed. Some of her instructions are hard if you don't really know what your doing like me. LOL! yours look good to me.

I too have the same issues with the ribbon turning into a pinwheel. If anyone have instructions on how to make or even use a bow maker I would love it if you could please share. I am also to cheap to buy one and am now to handy with a saw or drill. I barely can get by one sitting without burning my fingers on the glue gun or when making soap burning it on that. please help. thanks

Mindy,

Your bow is awesome! Is there anyway to show your tutorial with another color ribbon. It is a little hard to see which direction to make the loops.

Thanks! Again, I LOVE this bow!

You could het some dowels and floral foam and make it your own or predrill some holes in to a wood block and sand it and the use the dowels.

Good Luck!

Kat It looks like your bows are backwards in the pictures Like the loopys should be flipped over.. Also stiffing before making the bows sometimes helped me when i was learning.. HTH
