Default Can someone PLEASE help me out with this?

I am so frustrated! I just started making bows recently. I have the pinwheel, spikes, and boutique down pretty good for just starting (I think so at lease But the measurements are throwing me off! I go by a few charts I found online about "if you want a 3" boutique w/7/8 ribbon measure such and such." Well, I go by that chart and my bows are either too small or HUGE. Does anyone have links to measurements that I can write down and go by. The bows turn out fine with my "own" measurements, but it's hard to duplicate it or make it exact when someone asks for a 3" or whatever size bow.

I don't know if this is what you need, but this is from another post by another hipgirl.

1.5" Ribbon

4" Boutique = 28" of ribbon
4" Pinwheel = 23" of ribbon
3" Pinwheel= 18" of ribbon

7/8" ribbon

3.5" Boutique = 22.5" of ribbon
3 to 3.5" pinwheel = 19.5" of ribbon
2 to 2.5" pinwheel = 14" of ribbon

5/8" Ribbon

2" half pinwheel (only do one loop on each side) = 7" of ribbon
2.5" Pinwheel = 14" of ribbon
