Default help with measurements please :)

I want to make some bows that are layered and 3 inches like this one http://www.etsy.com/listing/62868265...m_campaign=api what do you think she is using as for ribbon size for each bow? (3/8, 5/8, 7/8, 1.5 etc) and what would you say are the measurements of the ribbons? I can't seem to figure any of this out lol! Thanks in advance!

I think the loops are 3/8" and the rest I think is 5/8". ( maybe 7/8")
can't help with the measurements as I don't make that style.

The leopard is definitely 3/8 and the others are 7/8. As far as lengths of the ribbons you will probably just have to play with it until you are happy with the size. When I first started doing mine I couldnt ever figure out what size for the surroundings so I made some out of some scrap ribbon that I use as templates just in case I am not sure what size I want for a particular bow. Like I have a 3 inch surround, 4 inch and so on that I can hold up to a finished bow to see what size I would like surrounding it. Hope that makes sense.

just a rule of thumb.
Whatever length you use for the center twisted add an inch to that to get the length for your loops. It looks like she added a little extra length for her surround loops since they don't hug the twisted bow

she makes the prettiest bows..I love how those spikes are...def uses some 3/8 in the spikes and actually the loopies to me just look like they are made a little more narrow which makes them perkier..and less spread out if that makes any sense at all...lol

I love these spikes on all her bows..they are different and a very unique style. props to this etsy store her stuff is so cute!
