Default Need some help with organza bows for a rush order?

I have a customer that wants to make a bow in this style for three flower girls in a wedding....next week.

I am not sure if this is made layering three basic boutiques or if it is wrapped multiple times to create the loopy look.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

She also wants this to be a 4 inch bow with 7/8 ribbon.



Thank you so much,

Kimberly

Looks like it was wrapped multiple times, looks just like a bow I made DD using that technique.

Thank you.

Did you use a tutorial? Templates?

I just did a quick one...can't be for sure from the angle of the pic but it "looks" to me like a 4 loopers.

To get the 4" width, I used:

4.5" template (bottom layer)
4" template (top layer)

Wrap around till u have 4 loops on each side. Make sure when you wrap (or start wrapping), your other end tail ends at the bottom.

Now if it's a 3 loopers, just wrap 3 loops but I think that pic is a 4 loopers.

lmk if you need pics.

Thank you...I will try your technique next.

I just tried wraping like I would for a basic boutique...but three times. It actually turned out cute...but not like the one I am aiming for at all.

Am I wrapping like I would to start a twisted, just around the template or at an angle like I would for a pinwheel? Sorry if I am not being clear.

don't wrap at an angle. Just wrap on top of each other.. then you can proceed fanning them out (pull the loops out).

also, after the wrapping, stick a needle at the center (I'm assuming you hv the NBNG?), slide the wrapped ribbons out. Then proceed with fanning out.

Thank you...that is what I just did. I am playing with satin ribbon, so I assume i will get a fluffier look with the organza.

Yep, NBNG

Off to make the next layer and see how it looks before I use up my organza.

I really appreciate your help

Ok, took a few quick snaps. Hope it's not confusing,,





After the wrapping (above pic), slide in a needle at the center.


What I meant by fanning out (the needle will help keep all the ribbons/loops in place and also helps when you're separating the loops)

~Notice that my other tail-end doesn't show, after finished wrapping all the loops needed, coz it still ends at the bottom.


Same pic as above, different angle.





Same pic as above..closeup..


tadaaa...easy peasy..

You ROCK!! Thank you so much!

Are you sewing the center or tying? If sewn, I would only need 2 stitches?

I promise to post a finished picture for you
