If you want about 2 inch tall loops you use a ribbon length of about 4 1/2 inches and just fold in half. Here is a picture of my first attempt, not too happy with it, but it is a start. You can see thread wrapping around the sides (just a little bit, but I don't like it). Not sure if that is avoidable though, I think I need more loops on mine...

Oh please, don't pre-cut your ribbon when you make loopy bow, that's my opinion. You'll cut the ribbons in the end when you finish it. It's much simpler!

Sarah.. somewhere I read to clip the ribbons together with clothes pins. So they all stay stacked. ya know? Then let the end rolls hang if you want too. I use hmm.. I think 3 feet of ribbon for the french clips- 5 different strands. I haven't ventured out into the crazy part of it yet!

Sarah, yes! It's not so awful as you thought. As you don't have to 'fold' the ribbon. Exactly, you just need to leave those 5 roll of ribbon hanging there and it's not difficult as the ribbons do not have to go around the clip, just make some loops on top... wait! yes, exactly the way a caterpillar moving if you what I mean. Then when you nearly finish you cut those ribbon. That way you'll never in short of ribbon or waste any in the opposite. Does it make any sense?

sorry! I just read the linked instructions and I was following TRR funky loopy bow. The linked instructions look a lot less time consuming.

2.5' = two and a half FEET, not inches, and yes, that's right. Use these instructions, they explain it well: https://www.theribbonretreat.com/cus...structions.pdf
