Default Re: 2.25" Ribbon Bows

Well ladies, you asked for it! LOL
I actually made this bow last night - as a sample for our location little league cheerleaders. I've sent it to the lady for approval and I am soooo nervous. I hope she likes them!

The silver is 2.25, black is 1.5, and the zebra is 7/8.

Please ignore my oldest daughters 'frazzled' looking hair. I just put it in her hair so you could see just how big it is. She's almost 15 years old, so just imagine how HUGE it will be on a 7 year old!!

Please let me know any suggestions on how I could improve. I'm always up for that!

I really like that bow, but it would probably swallow a small kid's head. Nice job though it is really nice.

2.25 bows are pretty darn popular here. They are huge, but if the mom likes large bows, she'll snap it up.

I need to make more...I've been sold out for quite a while. They do love them though! I even have moms that will want them on alligator clips (and I'm thinking...uhhh that's a huge bow on an alligator).

Oh, I have one mom who likes stacked bows with the 2 1/4 ribbon. Now talk about gaudy! Those are ones I"m embarassed to have my name associated with!

Yes they are HUGE - but that's what the lady asked for. She came over to my house and none of the bows that I had already made were big enough for her. She said I want HUGE - BIG POOFY - CHEER BOW. And I have to say, as a mother of a cheerleader, at that age, the bigger the better. Oh - and keep in mind - I live in Texas! LOL

Big hair - Big bows!

I have made some of the 2.25 bows...just by itself, simple & sweet. They are big, but that doesn't keep anyone from buying them. Everyone has their own tastes in bows and these sell just as well for me as the others. HTH

i think the bow looks great. im from texas too and used to be a middle school and high school cheerleader and let me tell you, the more glitter, the more hair gel, the bigger the bows and ribbon the better. that was the only time i hated being a cheerleader. the competitions were awesome but i felt like my head was gonna fall off lol. keep up ur good work
