I think those are cute! I'd flip the flower part the opposite direction so the points go "up" rather than down into the bow....if that makes any sense?

you've brought up (no pun intended - lol!) a point that i've always wondered about.

since she's using one sided printed ribbon . . . and i also want the most print to show . . . should i be doing the reverse when i make these . . . meaning putting the ribbon on the pin & tacking down the opposite side of the ribbon?

hope you understand what i'm saying . . . cause if she did what you're suggesting, then you'd lose a lot of the print . . . right?

Stacked pinwheels are probably my biggest seller! I normally do a solid pinwheel and then a slightly smaller printed pinwheel over it.

I love the stacked pinwheels. Hadn't ever seen pinwheels stacked before. Will need to give that a try.

Exactly...unless you want to make the ribbon flower the "right way" and then line it with a ribbon flower of a solid color...I don't think I make sense again! I will post another pic!
