Default cheer bows

Since i am new to this forum and bowmaking. It looks like cheer bows are the easiest to start with, but I really don't know what they look like or how to do them.

Are there any photos somewhere and instructions.

cheer bows are not the easiest...the actual bowmaking itself is easier, but if you plan on using any special fabrics, the process is quite time-consuming. I suggest searching the free instructions on here as well as on the internet and practice a while before you spend a lot of time and money on something...

While I would agree making a standard cheer bow with plain grosgrain ribbon is easier than making a boutique or stacked bow, there is an art to it once you begin to work with fabrics, cutouts and templates.

As with any bow you choose to make, there is an art to making any bow good. A cheer bow is shaped like my avatar. While the bow is relatively simple to make with practice, becoming familiar using the fabrics and making them look the same consistently takes time and materials.

There are many good tips to be found in the threads in this forum, detailed instructions can be purchased at No Bow No Go for $5.

Good Luck!
