What does everyone use for the centers????
I use the same DRR, just pull the knot SUPER hard. I also have to pull on each side of the ruffle to make sure it is good and tight. So basically if your knot is lying sideways like this: =x= , you'd pull the top and bottom of the left = and the top and bottom of the right =. If you do, it should get it nice and tight and make a cute little center knot.

I've not added any pics in a long time, but I have a model pic of a baby girl, she is wearing the Drr bow, and a birthday shirt I made.
Ooooh, thank you for sharing. That headband and bow is great and that little curly blondie is adorable.

I love this style with the DRR. This is two layers. Each layer is two separate loops that are stitched side by side. These are so easy to make. You don't want to make them too wide or they flop though.
This is gorgeous! Do you mean each layer is two seperate loops like the bow tie bow put together to make the pinwheel type bow? (Am I making sense?? maybe not sorry) So if you seperated them you would have four separate pieces? I'm trying to get this because I love your bow.

Exactly. It is two of these:



See how the top two loops is one piece and the bottom two loops is a separate piece? The are simply stitched through the center & cinched together. Then stack one on top of the other. I make mine so the top layer is slightly shorter.

Thanks.
