Default Bows with 2 1/4 inch ribbon...

Hey ladies! I just purchased some 2 1/4" ribbon and wanted to make some XL boutique bows with it... What measurement do you all use for these types of bows? I usually use around 28/29 inches of ribbon for my large (1.5") boutique bows... Thanks so much!

Thank you! I can't imagine a 6 inch bow, but then again my medium's a 4 inch, so large being 5, an XL would be 6! Crazy to think that's half a foot!

Never even considered a bow that big! I imagine it would be very pretty!
