Default How to make this chiffon bow??

Hi Ladies,

I posted in the Venus 11 gb thread but still haven't received any replies. I'd like to get some help soon since the buy closes tomorrow.

I'd like to purchase the trim that Venus uses for her chiffon bow. (see link below)

http://www.etsy.com/listing/66166721...ss-chiffon-bow

But I'm not sure on how to make the bow. I did order 5 bows in different colors from her and was hoping they would have been here by now so I could figure out how she does it.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much!

I haven't made one with her grass trim, but I did with the bubble trim. I just made it like a tuxedo bow. Tied off the center and then put my ribbon around the center. Really easy. Not sure if that is how she does it, but mine looked a lot like hers.

Here is a tutorial and I attached a pic of mine and Venus to show the comparison.

Thanks hun! That does help a lot!

Did your bubble trim come already cut or did you have to cut it for your bow?

I think they look a lot a like, too! I love how small yours is (at least it looks smaller) to fit the baby! Perfect size!

I ordered some too. I was planning on doing like the tuxedo bows too. That's what it looks like anyway!

What about the back? Is there felt?

Oh how I wish I would have received my order! Checked the mail this morning and still nothing.

Thank you for asking this. I have been wanting to place an order from her but was trying to figure out how to use them on headbands and such. I was thinking that glue would soak thru the fabric.

You have to cut it yourself.

I added felt to mine. The glue didn't come through.
