Default how to make big boutique bows?

okay so i have been making 4" layered boutique bows for a couple of months now. i use 7/8" ribbon and want to make them bigger using the 1.5".
but im just too scared. lol
i just wanted to know if they are basiclly the same as the 4" size, technique wise? and would i still use the alligator clip, like i normally do?
and also can i use my figure 8 method for folding the bigger bows?
sorry for all the question. i would love some help here.
thanks, in advance!!

mari

i make my 4" bows with 1.5" ribbon. did you want to make them bigger than 4" or did you just want to make them with wider ribbon? i do the same figure 8 technique and put them on large (2") snap clips but that's only because i prefer snap clips over alligator clips. i've actually never tried a 4" bow with 7/8" ribbon! i'm going to try it tonight!!

I use french barrettes when I use 1.5 inch ribbon-the bows are too heavy for alligator clips IMO. HTH!

how big are the french clips that you use?
and would a french clip work for the crotchet headbands?

My daughter has some cute funky loopy bows that are on french clips I sometimes attach them to crochet headbands...just slip them through the loops same as you would do if you where putting an alligator clip on a crochet headband
