They are really pretty!!! The "junk" really helps to soften the impact of the size, I think! (at least it does in the pictures)

FWIW, some folks LIKE the big bows and you might find that they do really well in your area--market niche. If not, you could always do the same thing, but cut them in half ala the pigtail bows.

My youngest daughter loves the large ones, but my older daughter just won't wear them. I used them as my testers and the market here just trends to less pouf.

Good luck! You did a great job!

Just wondering if anyone has tried making the bow from this tut?

I have. They are cute, and VERY easy. They do look "somewhat" like the raggie bows, but they are not as full (my raggie bows look super full). These are cute, and do not take long at all.

Beca, if you don't mind sharing, did you make the first bow or the second bow?

I fiddled around with the first one, but didn't have time to finish it...

I made the second one....sort of. The tut says to fold the ribbon lengthwise, and then fold it in half from end to end, but I just folded the ribbon in half from end to end, and stuck a needle through it. It wasn't exactly a straight fold....it looked more like the ange of the bottom part of the letter k....I hope that makes sense, LOL!! I think folding it in half lengthwise, and then folding like the "k" would make it even poofier. I also stuck in some sheer ribbon folded in the same way, and a few strands of korked ribbon. It was different from my raggie bows, but for the little amount of effort I put into it, it was cute!!!

I'm going to have to try that one If I get a chance to finish the one I started, I'll try and post a pic of it (wish me luck!)

Do you have a pic or two of the one you made? I'd love to see it :-)

I would love to see them also! I have made several raggie bows since I ordered the TuT from Punky but I have only given them as gifts and they were made with fabric, not ribbon. I wonder how an all sheer ribbon raggie bow would look? I bought a crap-load of sheer ribbon in every fall and christmas color that you can imagine. I have only made smaller raggies... I cut the fabric at about 2.5 inches. My daughter is only 2 and I don't want to overwhelm her little head- plus she has super fine hair that wouldn't support a huge ball of fabric. i am for sure going to try out the ribbon raggies... and maybe an all sheer one- just for funsies! I sell my bows out of a super busy consignment shop and it seems like, at least at this particular shop, the funkier, the better! So, I can play with it and have fun with it and not worry about how "strange" it looks. Also, to the poster that makes the raggie bows with "junk" Those are the coolest looking bows! I would have never thought to add korker ribbon to it! In everyone elses experience, do your raggies sell better on pony tail holders or clips (alligators, frenchy's???) Thanks ya'll!
