I make them too but hand stitch them because I'm not a sewing machine girl unfortunately. Here's a pic of one of mine.

thanks so much for doing this. I have been at this all day. I love the ribbon better than the fabric. I am going to put bottle cap centers. Then add a piece of felt to back of each one and then put a pin and an alligator clip. My question to you is how to keep the flowers flat and so they don't curl? I think this would be a good change for all of us. Where I live there is so many hair bow makers.

start sewing...it will start curling on its own...



I like to back stitch at the begining...and then at the end I leave a long piece of string to help gather the ribbon a bit more....I used 1 yd of ribbon for this..but I like to tug on it till I have 12 inches of a rufle....lolol..this is how you make ruffles for clothing too!



start gathering with your hand and turning it as tightly or loosely as you want it....
when you are comfortable with the size you want...i use a needle and start just stitching threw every layer of the ribbon/fabric...and just pull a bit as it gathers together..I like to make a couple of stitches to have a good hold on the whole thing....

Then just add a center...covered button.....

I don't understand how do you keep the flower flat. Maybe I am making mine to tight because they want to curl up

Yes Theresa taht is what is happening to you I think you dont have to pull so much the thread so it doesn`t not ruffle so much so it stands.if you want it flatter you have to pull less your thread.
Remeber to show us pics when you ate done.
I will try one later on the week when I finish a bunch of bows and clippies that I am making as party favors for a birthday.

Just don't pull the thread too tight. You'll get it right. Make sure you post a pic when you're done.
