Default really big bows

Hi ladies...
I need your help. I usually make twisted boutique bows. I use a 6" template. that's the biggest i have. i love the way my bows come out but they look too twisted so this morning i took my daughter to school and a little girl was wearing a huge red bow. it was a boutique bow but it did not look like the twisted. it was just four loops and the long tails. i make 6" and this bow was way bigger. Does anyone have an idea how to make those big boutique bows without the templates? I have a sale tomorrow and Friday and i know they would love those really big bows but i dont know how to make them



ok ladies...i found the bow i want to make...it looked just like this...how is that made?

We wear the big bows down here in Georgia too. I tie some huge bows with 2-3" ribbon quite often. I don't really know how to tell you to tie it. I don't use templates. I do them by hand the same way I would a twisted, only I don't shape out the loops the same way. These bows are the norm around here.

I think it's funny when people say something about bows and Texas. My in laws live in Texas and whenever we go visit, they just swoon over my kids hair bows. My MIL thinks they're so cute and wonders says all the time that she just doesn't understand why the little girls in Texas don't wear hair bows. I know that we have rarely seen one when we were out there visiting. They live in the Houston area.

You could take some cardboard and make your own 8" or 10" template.

I freehand mine so I'm not much help other than that.

I am too a big bow lover. I am from Utah and everyone in my small town thinks that my girls bows are rediculous. But we like em! I think this sounds like the accordian(?) fold. Are you familiar with that?

thanks, thats not the bows but i cant find it so that i can show u ladies a picture. I know that there's a web site named after either the child or the lady that makes the bows but i know they are located in Utah and her bows are huge and different from the twisted look. i have it on my other computer and i cant seem to find it now.

I've heard about Georgia too. lol I was going with the saying that everything is bigger in Texas. Come to my town you will see all kinds of bows on every little girl and all the moms around here make them. LOL not much of a market where I live. But it's fun to make them.
