Juliemo: Are you using all 7/8 ribbon? or some of the loops in the center 3/8?
Not fun for me and even less fun for her. Poor girl. She is quite happy playing with her daddy right now, though! I just love her little laughs and squeals! Awww, I will miss this age. My last baby . I'll be sure to take pics still for everyone.

Well I have gotten as far as cutting some ribbon....the 'non' spikes, and loops. My problem is that do not have that much of a variety in sizes or prints tho Mainly solid colours in 7/8. Most of my prints are 3/8. Thats why I was interested to see exactly what everyone else was using. I also have no marabou, so need a trip to Hobby Lobby tomorrow and maybe I'll be able to assemble something. I am 100% sure that it will not look anything like you lovely ladies have posted!!!

Question: how do you buy your marabou? I seem to remember the last time I saw it you had to buy an entire 'boa' of it.

Excited to see more of everyones pics and progress

I didn't really thank you properly for all the work you put into your posts. I, for one, truly appreciate it very much. It was so nice of you to help teach those of us (namely, ME ) how to make such a cute bow.

Thanks PLTB!

What do you mean by "reverse on each side" please?
