Default Adult Bows

Help!!! Please..... I have had 2 facebook fans contact me about bows today. Both of them want bows for themselves.... Adults! One lady wants a carolina gamecocks bow and the other wants a ryan newman #39 (nascar) bow. Any suggestions on making bows for women? I have only made bows for little girls... Thanks so much for your help.

I would say go with either a headband or a small bow on a clippie.

Friends are God's way of taking care of us.

i sometimes wear bows and the ones i wear the most are the sorta like bow ties but with 7/8 to 1.5in. thick ribbon with centers on them.and they are about 2in. to 3in. wide.....or fabric made ones....and get them on alligator clips most of the time...also, the smaller type flowers would work too....

I haven't made any bows for adults (that I know of!), but I have made them for teens. They seem to like the smaller bows that can be clipped into the side of your head, like a tiny baby clippie using 3/8 inch ribbon. I've also had some teens request the really big bows, like a cheerleader might wear with a ponytail. Those are usually about 5-6 inches across and double stacked.
