I did about 20 for a customer before Christmas-she wanted the same style, all different colors and for me the easiest way was the tried and true marking and folding for a twisted. They aren't as "perky" and rounded as the smaller ones, but they're really not supposed to be, I don't think (correct me someone if I'm wrong). I left 2.5 inches for tails and marked off every six inches for 4 loops, so 29 inches of ribbon per bow +knotted center. HTH

I like the 2 loop tails down as well as the twisted boutique. Though I make my measurments at 7.5.

Sorry, I went back and looked at my notes, I didn't use 6 inches for loops, it was 8 inches.

Yes but I think the biggest bow I make with 1.5" is 6 inches then it gets a too floppy and the loops are big. I haven't done it in a while so I don't have any. The wider ribbon make a bigger bow all the way around length, width etc.

Lynn love the pinwheel!!
