Here is a sight on instructions. You have to pay for them put you can get a general idea. You may be able to find some free ones somewhere. I will check in a minute.

Those are done like the looped bows girlie things, but you use only one ribbon, and you vary the lenght of the loops. For example, put five loops...going from the left of the clip, loop one would be 3 inches, loop two would be 2 inches, loop three would be 1 inch, loop four would be 2 inches and loop five would be 3 inches...THOSE ARE JUST EXAMPLE MEASUREMENTS!! Loop three would kind of stand up, and loops two/four would lay over loops one/five.

KWIM??

I do this type of bow. I have tutorial pics saved on my computer, just haven't finished writing it. I do my loops a little different though.

I always call this the perfect bow. It is just the right size for big girls, and little girls. I am guessing this is the same fold, just with the loops turned a different way. Is it???

Great link....I have that site on the free instructions for newbies STICKER.

I rarely see these bows but when I was wanting to make dog bows I found that site and that is the first thing that popped in my mind.

It looks like maybe two separate pieces tied together by the ribbon that looks like tails? It really is hard to tell since the picture is not very big.

I enlarged it on my computer and it still looks like maybe two separate pieces with a huge knot center. Not sure where the tails are coming from. Sorry. Maybe someone else will have a better idea.

I think tpj58 is onto something. The bow you posted looks more like a pinwheel than an accordion. Only it's made with satin ribbon, possibly wired. The way the tails are positioned they may come from the center knot.

it's not a pinwheel because the loops are not flat - the ribbon is both reg. gosgrain ribbon (this bow is at a local boutique here). The loops are stacked ontop of eachother, not an X.

I might just have to break down and buy one lol
