It took me 2 yrs to get that answer..it wasn't until I started showing my little girl that someone shared that with me and it's plastic tubing. Keep in mind when making doggie bows the proper size all depends on the dog's size of head if doing show style.

Here is my Lexie as a pup in her first show

Let me know if you have any questions!
Thanks so much for your help! LOVE your doggie bows! Your dog is so precious! I have an English Bulldog, so her hair is too short for bows ... What kind of rubber bands do you use? Do you use the grooming bands that you buy at PetSmart and other pet stores?

Actually I got the outfit at WalMart! Then realized I had pink ribbon with strawberries to match! Wish I would have gotten a better pic though!

Thanks so much! My Baylee is my baby! I just use the cheap ones from Walmart.....that was what my groomer was using before I made her bows. Haven't ever had one break yet and no complaints! They are made by Goody I think. You could always put the bow on her collar! Have a great day!

The bumble bee bow is just grosgrain ribbon size 7/8 with a bee center bottom ribbon is 5 inches top is 4.

As far as bands go, I only use bands I get from Show Off products (google it for site) you pay more but they last forever and a nice choice of colors! Again, size of bands depends on dogs hair, yorkies use either 1/4 or 5/16 med weight; dogs with alot more hair would use the 3/8. I would be happy to make anyone the type of dog bows I do, I'm probably the only one that makes them very cheap.
