Default Bow size

Hi ladies!!

I have a question.

How do you figure out ribbon length AFTER you've made a hairbow?

I made a TBB and IMO it cam out perfect and I didn't think to measure the ribbon before making the bow.

The bow is about 2 1/2 inch.

Any answer will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

I want to say ribbon length is about four times the size of the finished bow and add on any extra for tails. Don't go to the bank with that though...I am not absolutely certain. When I use 18 inches of ribbon, I end up with a 4 inch bow...no tails, just an inch on each end for sewing in the middle. Hope that wasn't too confusing and that it helps.

Just take it apart and measure it. Lose one "for the cause."

That's what I do, too! My 2 1/2 TBB are 13 inches of ribbon I think I leave 1 1/2 inches for the tails though for that size.
