Default Jeana, Lynn, and other "big bow" people..help please!

Can someone please give me a formula for making those big stacked bows? No matter what I do, I cant figure it out!

Like, use 24'' on 1/5 inch to make bottom layer which is boutique fold, then add spikes (4'' of assorted widths)...etc, etc?

Thanks in advance?

Lynn had a "recipe" in one of her posts recently. I think the original thread was about a loopy bow. I'll look and post later.

jen's recipe

25 inches of 1.5 inch bottom boutique bow, upside down (don't remember where I heard that but gives the bow nice fluff.

3 or more 6 inch spikes, variety of widths and textures, creased and tied (or sewn) after fanning

2 or more 3/8 loopies. I make these like my boutique twist bows now and they look better I think. I make them the measurement as my top bow.

24 inches of 7/8 in a boutique twist for the top.

I usually cut the same length each time and just adjust the tail to suit my needs

here are some recent additions including a Lynn tribute bow... I think I'll name all my roses that... The Lynn Bow

LOL! Recipes and Formulas! If we didn't know why we were here we may mistake it for Science or cooking!!

Jen those bows are very pretty!! I LOVE the Rose bow! I don't think I'll ever get that one down!!

Here is my Recipe/formula for an aproximate 4 1/2 inch from spike to spike bow

Base= 30in 1 1/2in wide ribbon. I fold mine using the butterfly fold.

Spikes= If you are just starting out try using just 4 strips of 7/8in and 1 peice of 1 1/2 ribbon cut to about 5in give or take a few. It is always better to have too much rather than not enough as you can always trim later. I fold each peice to crease the center to make sure they are even on all sides. Crease just like you would a normal bow and tie sew or wire what ever you may do. I have tried it all and honestly there is not one way I like better than the other. I like a variety! LOL! That way I don't get bord Once you get the spikes down it is so much fun to add lots of different widths.

Loopies/Surounds= I use 2 10-12in peices of 3/8 inch ribbon. Fold each one in half to crease center. Then I glue the ends to the middle to make sort of a figure 8 do this to each peice then glue one on top of the other. Again once you get this down it is fun to add more loops.

Topper= 22-25inch of 7/8in ribbon folded again with the butterfly fold.

I am not sure I am that great at explaining things so sorry if I confuse anyone. If you would like me to try to explain anything with pictures I would love to help out in anyway I can. Just let me know All in all I think you just need to play around until you find what formula/recipe works best for you. It's all trial and error.

Here are som examples using this formula

Sheeesh I should be in bed but I can't pry myself away from here.

Here is another fum formula just like the big boutique bows only geared towards the little toddler they measure in at a tiny 2 1/2 to 3 inches!



Base 22in of 7/8 ribbon

spikes use 1 peice of 7/8in and 2 peices of 5/8in or use all 7/8in what ever you decide

Loops 2 9-in peices of 3/8 using the same technique as above

Topper 18in of 5/8 ribbon

They are soooo cute!
I call them Itty Bitty Hair Pretties!
