Default I have a question about mini pinwheel bows...

They have a knotted center. At least the ones I'm talking about. But do you not put the tails and cut in a v like on other pinwheels? The ones I saw ...I could not see any tails on them , but they were very cute. Thank you for any suggestions on making these.

No tails at all? That doesn't sound like a pinwheel - more like a boutique bow. Do you have a link?

The smaller the pinwheel, the more simple I like it. And I just do a slanted end (cut on a diagonal.) I also sometimes use a flat 1/4 matching center on 3/8 ribbon so the pinwheel stands out.

I bet you're looking at a standard boutique, too. The tails ona pinwheel give it the "pinwheel" look.

No I'm sorry I don't have a link. I saw it on one of the pictures that pop up here and now I can't even find it again. I'm not good at making pinwheels and thought that these would be easier for me.

I usually use a flat center on my smaller pinwheels, too.
