Default How to Make a Large Boutique Hairbow?

I make all my boutique hairbows 24" of ribbon they are to small. At school I have been seeing girls at school have these really big hairbows that are adorable. I need to make some to sell. I am thinking for around a 9 year old girl. Tell me what length of ribbon I need.
Thanks,
Teresa

heres my formula

25 inches=4 inch bow
30in=5 inch bow
36in=6 inch bow
42in=7 inch bow
All my tails are 1inch.
I do mine by hand also not with a gatorbite or bowmaker. Not sure if that helps or not. But I'd say for a 9 yr old go with 5 inch or bigger. I did a order of 10 bows and make them all about 6 inchs for her (she's a tweener) and the mom is now ordering 10 more and said she loved them!
I guess its the new craze, she said her daughter wont even tell her friends where she got them from, so that way they won't have cute bows like her!
While that was flattering I would love more biz!!!...lol

I actually use 1 1/2" x 30" of ribbon for a 4" bow! But I think it varies! What width are you looking for?

thanks so much that is exactly what I was looking for the measurements. I also use the gator bite. I love that thing it has really helped me out. A miracle invention

Hi Teresa,

I forgot to mention that the 30" length is for a loopy bow, but I use 25" for a pinwheel...it just varies. It depends what style you're looking for!
