First of all you guys are all very welcome and I'm glad that I could help

I love the big poof of marabou. I make some like that and others I load up with ribbon so you don't see most of the marabou. I use varying sizes of ribbon from 3/8 to 7/8 and I try to use some grosgrain, satin, and sheer. I made one last night using glitter ribbon and it was super cute. I haven't made one using tulle (I always want to type tool lmao) in place of the marabou but it was super cute!! I have added tulle to some of them along with the ribbon and marabou and I like those as well. I've added all sorts of i\embellishments from crystals to buttons to those beaded spikey things (technical I know) that they sell in the floral department. I use ric rac and elastic double ruffle trim. I think HL is a great place to find interesting ribbon for these bows. I scored some awesome christmas ribbon at Michael's last night for a christmas bow. I've made them with collegiate ribbon (WPS!!! Razorbacks!!) I currently have about 25-30 styles of this bow for sale. I love it and my customers love it. I get bored when I make a "regular" bow now lol the are more creative to me. I hope you all do well with them!!

I do get my marabou in a full boa and just cut off whatever size piece I need.
To do this I put my dust buster between my knees and turn it on (get your minds out of the gutters ladies lol) and cut my marabou over the dust buster so that the feathers that come off don't get everywhere.

I do one side of the marabou at a time (the marabou sort of forms a line down the middle of the bow) I glue them in whatever order I find most pleasing to the eye. When I start on the other side I go in reverse order. Which ever loop is farthest to the left on one side will be farthest to the right on the other side. I just like the order it gives this "chaotic" bow. But you can be as random as you want to be. That is just what I like to do HTH

Ok i'm kinda lost. I haven't attempted it yet... but how do you avoid it looking like you only put the ribbon on the sides of the marabou? Primptique yours looks good. Did you fold some ribbon over the marabou?

Hope I made sense

Ah, now I see what you mean by "reverse" Thank you for taking the time to explain it to me. I really want to make one of these bows (without your help though, it just wouldn't be possible!) You're a sweetheart PLTB

I was wondering that too. How do you all get so many loops in, and looks like on top of the puff???

I am seriously confused. Okay, so I tried to make this bow twice and they just don't look right. I posted pics, but deleted them because I think they're just horrible looking. Now for what I'm confused about...I was searching online for a tutorial for this bow. I couldn't find one. So I went to google, selected images, and typed in funky hair bows. I clicked on a picture that was similar to tutuspoiled.com's funky hair bows which led me to savvybritches.com. Tutuspoiled.com aka andjane (etsy) aka Tutuspoiled Jess (facebook) has the EXACT same pictures as the pictures on savvybritches. Each seller has a facebook page and a website, but don't seem to be in any relation to each other. Who's copying who?

I think I figured out the puff on the other ones in the links...

They are just using a strip where I folded mine into a circle. So on the next one I'll try it like that lol

if she sold them to boutiques would they not say who the bow was made by? I have a friend, and she has kids clothes in boutiques and they say who it was made by.

Well I'm not sure because on the savvybritches site they claim to be sisters and claim the designs as their own. I just thought it was weird. I thought andjane was the same person as tutu spolied.
