Default Making a boutique style bow with 3/8" ribbon.

Does anyone have any good instructions for making a boutique style bow with the 3/8" ribbon? I love them and need to make some for my neice but I get soo frustrated working with ribbon that small.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks!

They are a little tedious to work with. I recently made over 300 of these for a wholesale order. I thought I was going to die Sometimes it helps if I use an alligator clip to hold the folds as I go. Another tip would be to make sure the angles of the ribbon are just right before you sew it/tie if off. It really matters even more with these little guys than on the larger bows.

Here's a picture of one I made with 3/8" ribbon. I do another size even smaller than this one!

I cut mine 12 inches. I find that it's really no harder/easier than regular boutiques. I have pretty big hands too.

There is a thread about 4 pages in on the Gallery pages that is called "my minis" by pinkster. I want to get my 3/8* twisteds to look like those. Any suggestions? I can't seem to get the folds quite right.
