Default need help-customer request for 6 in bow with no spikes

How would you make one? I showed her a pinwheel made with a 5 in. templete and she said that was too small. But she does not like them with anything else on them, she said just a plain big old fashion bow. She is from the south... I make mostly small ribbon flowers and 2 in. pinwheels. Any ideas would help me so much! She wants to order a bunch if I can show her a style that she likes. Thanks!

I would say you would need at least 1.5" ribbon, but maybe 2.25" would be better and using a 6-6.5" template. Did she like the pinwheel? If she is wanting an old fashioned style then maybe a basic boutique bow would be best.

AN old fashion bow would make me think a tails down bow. I'd use a bigger template if the 5 was too small. Maybe a 6 or 7. If you dont have one, I'd make one out of cardboard.

If you are using NBNG templates I would definitely recommend using 21/4 inch ribbon and the biggest template you have maybe a 6 or 7

I'm from the South and agree that you would want to use the 2 1/4 inch wide ribbon to make your big bow with. Probably a Boutique style bow would be a good one to use.
