Default What do you think she wants?

I have a regular customer who likes very plain bows. She has a bunch of my pinwheels and some with 2 loops but no tails showing (her daughter thinks she is angelina ballerina in those). Her mother asked me to make some new bows but isn't clear on what she wants. She has seen all my pics on my FB and I've even showed her more. This is what she is asking for:

-white and maybe pink or pale pink

-"just a straight kinda layered piggy tail pairs"

-"the ones I was hoping for are just a staight line with a little loop on top"

-"2 big simple ones and a pair of white too"

She doesn't want stacked, pinwheel, or tails down. I showed her tuxedo and she didn't respond, but I think that might be what she wants. What do you think?

i think she wants bigger than that b/c her daughter has crazy curly hair. 3/8" would get lost in it. She can be so vague but I want to make her happy b/c she comes back every couple of months.

You can make those bigger. I have made some with 5/8" and even 7/8". I use them to hold back my bangs at times.
I agree though. See if you can find a picture of what she wants, or have her find one and send it to you. Just so you get it exactly right.

It sounds like a tuxedo to me. You can make them with larger ribbon.

Yep -- you'll just need to keep sending pictures until you "hit" on the right style! Good luck!

Do you think she could even mean spikes? Hope you can figure it out!

i must have shown her about 8 different types of bows! in the end...she wants a set of two loops, tails down bows and one set of this kind I made a long time ago....it's a pinwheel but i turn flip the ribbon so two of the loops are kind like awareness ribbons...it's hard to explain but i took out an old one like that from my DD's closet when I took more pics of bows for her. she said she may pick out other stuff when she comes too.
