Default what is the best style bow to make....

using 2.25" ribbon?i made a twisted and i fell like it is still kinda small. the pinwheel is too floppy. maybe i'm not using enough ribbon for the twisted but when i tried more it too became too floppy. starch is not an option because a few of my costomers girls have allergies. any suggestions would be great! TIA!

I love twisted boutiques with 2.25" You will need to mark at least 8" between loops to have a nice size. I also like making a simple two loop tails down bow with the 2.25.
