Default Pinwheel Help

I have searched but cannot find the answer.

I make pinwheels using 7/8 and I just can't get one right using 1 1/2" ribbon. Twisted boutiques are not selling well for bigger bows, so I thought I would try to make some larger pinwheels.

Anyone want to share how much ribbon you use for the larger pinwheels and what size you make them.

Thanks!

I make them with 1.5 and they are about 3.4 inches, hang on, I will measure how much ribbon I use as I work straight off the roll.
