Red face 2 or 4 loops on alligator clips

Hello! i am new to this group and am so appreciative for you all to give such great detailed tips!

I am completely new to this and would like to make bows for my one year old daughter. It's so exciting now that her hair is long enough for them!

I aplogize, i do not know the names of these bows.... but these are the two I'd like to make. If you know the names then I'll be happy to search for the directions on here.

I would just search for mini bows.

These are pretty easy to do. Basically take a length of ribbon and make a circle. Take another smaller piece and wrap it around for a center.

To do the first bow you pictured you do that same thing but with 2 pieces and then criss cross them before you do your center ribbon.

I think the second one is called a tuxedo bow, but I'm not sure.

I was just working on a bunch of the tuxedo style today! I make my circles from 3.5" ribbon. Then I find the exact center and put a dot of glue in center to make a figure 8. Then I glue it to the clip and add the center. I sometimes do the flat center but in this pic I have the knotted center. Hth!
