Default Cheer Bows for age 10 and under

I was curious if someone knew what size ribbon to cut for bows for 10 and under. I have templates but I'm afraid it will be way too big for their little heads. I have some 1 1/5 and 2 1/4 ribbon I ordered in the colors so if someone could just enlighten me............I would be oh so grateful.

I make them for my 3 year old and I usually do 22 to 24 inches. That way the tails aren't TOO long/big. I think they look great on little girls as well as big! Good luck!!

I would use the 2 1/4" ribbon as the base. Instead of using 28" of ribbon I would use 26". Mark at 5,13,and 21". That will give you 7" loops and 5" tails. Perfect for younger girls. Just my opinion. HTH!

Is it for All Star Cheerleaders or for Rec/Sports team cheer? My daughter is 8 and all of our girls at the All Star gym wear the same size bows...HUGE! They all wear the 8" wide bows made with 3" ribbon.

The pic on my avatar is my 8 year old daughter at competition wearing a 2/25" bow, tails are a V-cut so they are about 4" long. I measure my ribbon/fabric to 26", marked just like gmcks, then when I cut the V-cuts, I fold the ends, and use a rotary cutter on my mat for a 45 degree angle.
Keep in mind this is a competition bow. Her game bows are the same size, but just with less bling. However, in the interest of those who prefer to wear their bows on the backs of their heads, I do make my "other" game bows with 6" tails, much less stiff, with ponys on the bottom of the bow instead of the back.
I think her bow looks great, not too big, not too small. Not a loopy or baby-ish bow, but an awesome cheer bow!
