Question How to make this bow?? Please Help!!

My cousin bought this bow for her daughter and asked me if I could make more like it. I snapped a few shots..bought the ribbon I needed and decided to give it a try. I am usually really good at figuring out how to do something by looking at a picture. Not this time!! I have tried & tried and hit a wall..! They are out of town now so I can't get the bow to look at for another week ..so I just have my pics which I wish were better...& I am anxious to figure this out!! Help Please! I posted some pics front and back of the bow.

I think mk's right, it looks like a boutique bow with loops pulled further to the top n bottom sides, with a really long tail. I think the large width of the ribbon makes the loops a bit floppier than with a typical boutique bow (BB) and left a long tail in the front. She probably used heat n bond lite to fuse the tiger/zebra ribbon to the green then tied the bow. Good luck with this bow, a bit strange with the long tail hanging, but to each their own...It's difficult to make a bow "your own" or "an original design" that's been around so long....

Looks like a boutique bow with really wide ribbon. It looks like they left the bottom two loops longer and the top two loops shorter instead of making all the loops even.

How did it turn out? I played with the basic bow by making the bottom loops longer and it looked like the picture http://www.girlythingsbows.com/basic_bow.html. It looks more like a basic bow than a boutique bow to me. I may not know what I'm talking about because I'm new at this, lol.

I think that it's one of these "mega-bows." Take a look. Maybe having some different bows in the same style to look at will give us a better idea of which type bow it is! HTH!

It looks like 2.25" ribbon with 1.5" ribbon on top. I have to agree with the above poster....it does look like the mega bow. It's just going to be an oversized bow with a long tail.
