Default Itty Bitty Help!

I know I am going to get told to search the forums. I DID! To no avail! My question is what size do of ribbon do you guys use to make the itty bitty bows for Piggy's??? I did 7/8 and it just didn't work that great. I used a piece 14.5 inches in length. What do you think? Am I on track? Use 5/8? Ideas please! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

I usually use 3/8 for itty bitty ones 5/8 does make some pretty small ones too though....hth depends on the size of the girl...infants 3/8...bigger 5/8

Thanks! By the way, I just saw your OSU bow and I LOVE IT! Where did you get that ribbon? I have tried everywhere and haven't found it. My girls would be in heaven!

agree w/everyone else (3/8)..as far as lengths it really is just playing around w/it till you figure out what you like best.

I generally use 3/8th and if I'm doing one for a tiny snap I use 1/4 I don't measure my length though sorry. I just fuss around with it until I like the way it looks.
