Default To measure or not to measure?

Hello all,

I am kind a newbie to this but have managed to successfully make a few diff types of bows, just experimenting with the ribbon I have (which is nothing compared to all of you!!!...2 ziploc baggies )

Anyhoo, I did not measure the length of any of the ribbon, just eyeballed it and I only made one of each. Now my friend wants me to make some for her daughter, but wants a matching pair. Arghh, I was going to make another one of the one's that I have, but its driving me crazy trying to get an exact match.

I think I have answered my own question....I should have measured!! I see from everyone's web/Etsy pages that pretty much all the diff types of bows are a similar, dare I say standard size. If you don;t mind sharing I would love to know the lengths of ribbons you use.

Thanks

I always measure. I do know that some people that don't, but I have to. I am anal....lol.

As for measurements.....there is a seaerch option on the top bar. Just click on it and type in what you are looking for. You can normally find what you are wanting the answer to by doing that since most questions have been answered. I actually did a ribbon measurement thread when I first joined. Just click on my name, go to my stats, and you can view all of the posts that I have started. You should be able to find it there. HTH!!

It is ok. We all ask similar questions. I didn't mean to sound upset or anything - just fyi.
