Default How is this bow made?

The three bows in the back that are stacked looks pretty simple, but Im trying to figure out how the corkers were attached. Anytime I put corkers on a bow, it looks like a big mess. Were the corkers strung together, then sewed on maybe? Any ideas? Im totally new at making bows too, do these look like 4 inch strands? How many would I use for something like this?? Sorry for all the questions, I just think this bow is darling and wanted to make one for my daughter!

Default Re: How is this bow made?

Bottom bow is has 4 loops on one side, is a loopy bow variation on my TOTTS instructions, I'm sure there are hipgirl instructions. using 7/8 ribbon

next layer looks to be a 3 loop bow - same instructions, using 7/8 as well

next layer up looks like a 2 loops - same instructions or could be just basic bow

last is just korker pieces to top it off and the whole thing is on a crochet headband.

As for the korker question - I would decide on what your lengths are for the whole bow - let's say the bottom layer was 3.5", next 3", the next 2.5" then the korker strands would probably measure about 2.5-3". I would sew the strands like you would a normal korker (up through the center of the strand with the needle, I always have a piece of 3/8 ribbon on the bottom of my korkers to wrap around the clip, so in this case you'd want the piece to be long to be able to wrap around all the layers. Looking at the bow she probably has 12 pieces or so on the top?

Does this make ANY sense? lol

I am nosy. This sounds like a fun bow, but I don't see a picture of the bow. Am I missing something? I went to the first post but I do not see a picture.

The photo was of a baby with a bow in her hair. It's been removed.

Those are gorgeous bows. All the talent on here makes me want to pack up my toys and go home! I still can't figure out the difference between the types of bows and when to use what! Is it a boutique, or twisted, or butterfly... and when do I use what... The only one I can spot is the korker bow.

Doesn't that make for such a thick bow? When I try to stack just a couple simple bows my centers look like they stand up like a skyscraper!
