Default how to make little bows for infants

I have spent the better part of an hour looking for tutorials for infant bows, but am not really finding what I am looking for. I was hoping one of you ladies could help.

Currently I offer 20 mm snap clips with tuxedo bows on them for infants, but my customers are looking for more options. I have seen bows that sort of look like mini pinwheels, but am not quite sure how to make them. Does anyone have any tutorials they would be willing to share or some suggestions?

What size ribbon do you use for your tuxedos? I would love to make some for my 7 week old but don't know if a huge bowwould look good on her yet.

One that I have done for her and get compliments on is the ribbon flower loop bow. I only do one layer of loops but everyone likes them.

I use 3/8 ribbon, but am thinking I can make small tuxedo bows with larger ribbon too.

Is there a tut for the ribbon flower loop bow?

There is a tutorial for the flower bows on The Ribbon Retreat website. I just play aorund with ribbon sizes to make them big or small.

There is also this one that I have done as well. http://girlythingsbows.com/button_flower_clippie.html

I also have the No Bow No Go template and I can make smaller bows using them. Like the pinwheel and the twisted. I have seen people make their own templates out of cardboard and such so maybe go that route?

Would you mind posting a picture of your tuxedo bow. I have only made them with bigger ribbon and I would liek to see how they look.

i love the big bows and flowers in the wee little ones. everyone always says, "its bigger then she is"...the little ones look good too but don't hold back in my opin!

I spent the afternoon making these. I know they are not perfect, but they are a start in the right direction, I guess. If anyone has more ideas, I am open.

And if anyone knows of a clip that I can put the tuxedo bow on where the clip doesn't show, I would appreciate any info.

I like how you did the flower with the smaller ribbon very nice. I got from hobby lobby some really tiny snap clips I am wondering if you could use thse somehow.
