I keep trying to make these, but so far they just aren't turning out quite right. It's getting better, but mine always end up with a flat top and it looks more cylindrical than pom-pom. Anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong? No amount of fluffing seems to help.

Thanks!

When I make these I take the last couple pieces and instead of just adding them to the stack flat down I sew up the middle of them. I hope this makes sense. This tends to make the whole poof more rounded and well puffy.

i just stumbled on this blog that has an easy one & a technique i've not seen before . . . but this one uses fabric . . . but it might work w/skinny ribbon thru the plastic needlepoint material?????

When I made mine, I wove thru the center of each piece of ribbon... just like when you're creasing a bow. HTH! MK

I actually found a pic I did while making my first set of these.

The sequin ribbon is actually sequin fabric, often called confetti sequin, adhered to same-color ribbon with heat n bond (usually lite, cause it gets pretty stiff), made into a spikey (or funky) pony-O. I haven't seen the ones from cheerleading Co., but i saw A WHOLE BUNCH of those incredibly cheap, 4-dollar zebra-and-gold-with-sequin bows from Omni cheer or campus cheer at our recent competition and Oh, boy!! could you tell those were mass-produced by 7 year olds in a sweat shop! they were fraying and looked horrible. Get what you pay for, just my $.02.
Anyway, back on topic, there are a bunch of tuts for the spikey bow, maybe if you added more spikes, it would be puffier instead of circular? the sequins are stiffer, I'd add more grosgrain or satin for volume. I saw someone recently made some super nice green n white ones for a Spartans team, try searching for her bows under "cheer bows" and maybe she can help. I try to stick with cheer bows, no spikes or loopy barrettes or anything, or I'd write ya a tut. HTH,

I need to find out how and where to get the sequin ribbon.
I have someone that wants them. I told her I have never done these before but she trusts me to figure out how to. HELP!
Try this tut ~

I've made these bows and they turn out looking just like the cheer bow you're talking about. Just cut your ribbon on an angle, instead of flat edged.
