Default toddler tails down bow

I've been searching all day and I know I've seen a tutorial on how to make these..online and on here but now when I need it I can't find it and my daughter keeps screaming mommy every 5 seconds lol i wanted to make something like this with satin ribbon for my daughter to wear to a baptism tomorrow. Can someone please help me. I know it's a tuxedo bow but how do you get the ribbon to have the tails down behind the tuxedo and how long do you cut that part of the ribbon. TIA

Super easy. It's actually 2 different pieces. You make the tuxedo bow. Then take one piece of ribbon and cut the ends to be spikes. Then sew up the middle to make the crease. Use a dot of hot glue to glue the two pieces together at their creases and finish off with the center and clip. Hope this made sense!

I really like the tails down bow! I think the length of the spikes would be roughly around 3-3.5 inches?
