Looks like a twisted boutique bow to me. If you use the search button on here, I am sure you will find more info on that type.

7.5" across? Who could wear something that big? It would look like a misshapened hat, wouldn't it?

I was thinkin the same thing. I use 2in ribbon and make a basic bow and it's a pretty good size for my 3 year old.

They are huge! I have seen them in person. I usually make bows out of 21/4" ribbon a 6" bow. These are 7 1/2" across and 6 1/2" in height. I have ppl that buy bows from me wanting them.

Wow! 6.5" high!

You know, if you've got the customers, GO for it!

I wonder though, how much would you have to charge for something like that?

I have made a few out of 3" ribbon that come out to about 7.5 inches wide, but usually if someone wants a BIG bow, they order one that is made form 2.25" ribbon. I rarely get orders for ones with the 3" ribbon:

I make them the same way as any other tbb that I make, using the pin in the middle method.
