Default Boutique Bow - ribbon lenght req'd???

Hi y'all,

Oh please help a frustrated newbie.

When making boutique bows, how do you know what length to cut the ribbon to make the different size bows iusing the different ribbon widths?

(e.g.) 2" bow using 3/8, 1/2", 5/8, 1-1/2" width ribbon
3" bow ditto
4" bow ditto
etc, etc

The ones like these:

How To Make Boutique Hair Bow--1--Making 4 Loops Even. : Hip Girl Boutique!, Hair Bows, Baby Hair Clips, Rockabilly Hair Accessories and more.

I think I've seen this info somewhere before and I've been looking thru ALL the info you wonderful ladies have posted that I have saved, but I can't find it for the life of me.

I did FINALLY make the 2" boutique bow using the 7/8" ribbon. I didn't think I'd ever get it. Yeh, finally some bows finished!!!!

Thanks for your help
Regina

These are my measurements that I use.

2" bow 17" using 5/8 ribbon
2.5" bow 19" using 7/8
3" bow 24" using 7/8
4" bow 29" using 1.5"

I leave 1.5" tail on my bows.

Thanks Lisa. This is getting addictive. I know I have a long way to be as good as you ladies, but at least I'm starting to get how to make some of these things

Thanks again

I use these lengths:

18 inch 7/8
24 inch 1.5
30 inch 1.5

I originally thought it was supposed to be for 3 inches, 4 inches, and 5 inch bows. However...when I make them with the boutique fold, it's smaller than the formula indicates it "should" be. I guess it's all the fluff from the loops.

I use 12 inches for 3/8 tiny bows.
