Default old school boutique bow instructions

Several of you wanted to know how to make my basic (old boutique) bow. Here's a quick and hopefully easy to follow tutorial.

You will want to measure and cut your ribbon to 20 inches. I do not really mark for this bow as I have made it so long I kinda know where to fold. Use your bowdabra as a guide.

I used to hold the bow by hand but I have found this mini bowdabra is amazing.


Lay your ribbon face down with the "center" pinched between the arms. Make a loop and twist at the "Center" layer between the arms.


Continue to twist and layer your ribbon. You should have 2loops and 1 tail on each side.



Fluff your bow by pulling on the loops so they fan out. Sew or tie very tightly.


Finished bow ready for center and clip

Your welcome. I was so happy when the mini bowdabra came out. I was tired of holding my bows, those make my hands sore.
