Default How in the world?

I had a customer ask me if I could make her daughter a hair bow like the one in the little girls hair in the link below. I don't even know where to begin Any advice would be appreciated, I hate to tell her I can't do it, but I think I cant do it!

I have seen one of these in person. They are very elaborate. Wishing you lots of luck on making it! Im sure you can do it just give it a try...but i would ask for a better pic maybe from different angles.

It looks like a loopy bow with long tails but I would do it on a headband rather than a clip and use wider ribbons than what I would use for a normal loopy bow.

If you cant do it though I wouldn't because I would rather skip the sale than send someone crap and get a bad name for it. Maybe refer her to someone who makes good loopy bows to see if they can do it for her?

Ballet Folklorico Bows are very elaborate- and usually very specific to the troupe they dance with- I would get more specifics before attempting it....if it's just for a costume or something I would do a loopy OTT bow with streamers/tails on french clips

Thanks for all the great advice. I did decide to pass. I couldn't imagine spending hours researching and creating something, to only have it be not good enough. Plus, I just don't think that I could do something elaborate. I can't imaging what they must cost
