Default Raggie Bows

Well, I've made a few modified raggie-type bows over the past 2 months and I think they turned out ok.

But I was wondering, are they popular where you live? If you make them to sell, do they sell well?

So far, my gd is the only little girl I've seen wearing them around here. And, I have to say, they're BIG on her! I might try making a smaller one later today.

I love them! I have not seen anyone wearing these bows here. I have not sold any of my bows yet. Here, they prefer to wear a long piece of the double ruffle ribbon in their hair.

But anyway...I love your bows.

I like them. I have only made a few. I like to make them to match the knot dresses that my mom makes for my girls, use the left over fabric. I also made a few UL/Uk ones and sold them. I do make mine smaller. I like the big ones but they kind of seem to take over some of the little ones heads, so I make them just a little smaller.

Thanks so much Heather

I hope to make some more of them, but it does look like gd will be the only one wearing them lol

I definitely see what you mean about the bows taking over the head on little ones. When I first put it on gd's head, she ran over to the mirror and started admiring it.. so I let her wear it. She loves them! But I am going to try and make a smaller one. If you don't mind sharing, how many strips do you use in your smaller ones?

Way to go Texas! LoL! Ronnie, do you have raggies for your little one? If you do, are they on headbands?

I followed the directions for pigtail bows (cut the big ones in half) and they turned out to be a much better size. My preteen hates even that size though. We also tested with a bunch of her friends. They all agreed they were too poofy for their tastes.

Yours look really nice!!
