Default What do you use you double ruffle for?

Do most of you only use it for toggles or do you make bows too? I was just curious because I thought it would look really nice for Christmas bows so I made some to match my daughters' outfits, but don't like the larger one so much. It's kind flimsy. I'm not worried about it because it's just for them, but thought I'd get some opinions or ideas. Thanks ladies.

I use mine for bows and yes the larger does tend to be floppy. I have also made sewn headbands but they can be a bit tricky with the ruffles. Havent made them as toggles yet, not sure how to layer the ribbon on top. THinking of trying one with fabritac.

I use 7/8" double ruffle to make double stacked (a single layer is too flimsy in my opinion) basic boutique bows. I even add appliques to the center. They're one of my hot sellers!

I use it for both. Although, I do make my bows with 7/8 DRR and they turn out cute. I haven't tried it with the 1.5 yet.
I know there were some pictures on here of some made with 1.5 that looked fabulous.

No haven't korked it. I made two double layer red and white bows to go with my girls Christmas outfits. We are getting pics done tomorrow so I will take my own and post it on here. Maybe it's just me. They were my first ones so maybe if I make some more I will like it. For the toggle, you could probably use wonder under. I was going to try that if I get into making them. I am going to wait to start new bows and ribbon things next year.

I use 1.5 for bows. I never just do a single bow though it's always double stacked.

I love using them in streamers! Not a lot-it's too expensive, but one or two strands mixed with whatever else looks really pretty.

I've used it for double stacked 3" boutique bows and also for little 2" boutique bows- turned out really cute I thought! And also the toggle headbands and paci clips
