Default Are there instructions for making toddler bows?

I saw the mini bow thread and it is wonderful but I wondered if there were instructions for making the boutique or simple bows smaller. Like on 5/8 or 3/8 inch ribbon instead of 7/8 inch ribbon?

You would pretty much do it the same way. I wouldn't advise making a bow over 2" (when completed) if using 3/8" ribbon.

Thanks, I have never made a boutique bow before and would like to make some pretty little bows for the ends of my snap clips but I have only mastered the mini bow. lol I was wondering how you figure out the measurements for a smaller bow on the end of a clip?

I'm assuming you are talking about how to figure out the length of ribbon needed. For my bows using 3/8" ribbon that will be placed on the end of a snap clip, I make them 2". I use a "formula" for ribbon length (for any bow, any size ribbon), you may already have one established but mine is: the number of loops + 2.5" x the width of the bow

Basically, if you want to make a 2" bow with 4 loops, the formula used to figure out ribbon length would be:

4+2.5=6.5"
6.5"x2"=13"

13" would be the length of ribbon needed. HTH and makes sense

that is so helpful!! I love that formula. thanks for posting. it takes a lot of the guess work out. (I have just made one I liked, then kept track of the length of ribbon I used. It's worked so far, but this is better!)

I have to give credit where credit is due. When I first started exploring hair bow making I had found another forum, it was just a general craft forum, and someone had posted this formula there. Then after I broke down and ordered the TOTTs package, it was also in there. I was reluctant to post it because it is in the TOTT instruction packet and the instructions are copyrighted but since I had initially found it for free, and it's still out there for free, I didn't figure it would be a problem to post it here for easy access.
