Thanks for sharing that! I have a nephew that is 2 years old and his Mom dresses him real vintage. That would be a perfect gift!
Would you mind me asking what your measurements are? That looks like a good size!

Of course I'm usually on here when I am at work and don't have my things. I used satin ribbon, I believe is was about 1" (give or take a little) and the bottom was cut to 6 or 7 inches, and the top cut to 5 or 6 (one in less than bottom). I can measure it and let you know tomorrow, if you want. Then I cut about 2- 2 1/2" for the center, made loops with each bow ribbon, over lapping and glueing about a 1/4", then pinched and glued the center ( I was too afraid to sew it because satin is fragile), then I glued the center to the front of the bow, then wrapped it around the back and glued it to an unlined alligator clip. Hope that helps. Oh yes, you can kind of hold it together and adjust it to get the look you want, before glueing. ~Bonnie

Oops, I do have the ribbon on me, but not the bow. I used 1.5" satin ribbon, and those lengths are fairly close, but I can still double check if you'd like.

I tried to measure, which is a little hard to do when it's finished, but the base is ribbon is about 7" and the top about 6".
