Default help with HUGE pinwheel

Hi! I haven't been on HG for a long time since my daughter(4) refuses to wear bows or anything in her hair but I really need help. My step daughter is 14 years old and asked me if I would make her and her younger sisters some hair stuff. She warned me that she loooved big bows but I figured maybe 4 inches big but she said that she wants some 5 inch pinwheels! I have no clue as to how wide of a ribbon I should use and how long I need to cut it but I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out. I am stumped

Thanks so much!
Angela

I would say 1.5 ribbon would be ok. It depends on how you make your pinwheels but what I do is I measure a big loop for the size of my pinwheel and then make the other loop the same size. This way when you crease you would have 2.5" on one side and the 2.5" on the other side totaling 5". MMMM maybe I don't know how to explain.

Yeah, kind of hard to explain. I don't really have a measurement. I make the bow, then cut off at the end. Just make it however big you want it, then cut off where you want it to end. HTH.
