Default advice on Michigan bow

Alright, I am trying to make a Michigan bow to match an outfit. All I have of the outfit are the socks that are in the pics. I am having problems with the center. I don't have any yellow or navy blue that match the colors on the bow. In one of the pics, there is a piece of yellow/black ribbon where the yellow matches, but not the black, since there is no black on the bow. Should I use white for the center since there is white on the socks, it will match...right or should I use the yellow/black? DH says to use yellow/black, but I don't know. Should I just go to Michael's tomorrow and get some darn navy to match?
Let me know any other advice or critsism you may have...PLEASE BE HONEST! I want the truth. I promise I will not cry myself to sleep or hate you forever if you tell me its horrible and start all over, OK! Sorry if the picture quality makes it hard to see what I'm talkin' about.
Thanks!

If you were making an Ohio State bow, I could help you, but unfortunately I can't with U of M-hahaha

I'd probably go with white because it at least matches something-and you could just use like 1/8" ribbon so that it won't be as noticeable. I hate using that printed ribbon-I think it's kinda hard to work with. I just do the snappies and tails down bows with it

Since you are making them to match the sock...I would just use the white.

If you have time to run to Michael's than I would go with a yellow center.
Good Luck!

Thank you everyone! If I get a chance (haha) I'm going to head to Michael's. Too bad it about 40 minutes away. Otherwise, I'll use the white. I checked at wal-mart and they had nothing I could use.
That printed ribbon was hard to use!
Thanks again!

I would use the white and then use the printed ribbon as spikes between the white and navy layer. Then make a yellow block M out of ribbon or foam or whatever for the very center. I have some of the printed ribbon in Alabama and Auburn and I have used it as spikes and as those simple covered clips to go with DD's big bow. Just a suggestion
