Default Cheer Bows

I was wondering how you guys make your cheer bows? What size ribbon, how long, etc. Thanks!

There are MANY different variations of cheer bows, particularly depending upon who you are making them for (all star, rec, pop warner, sideline vs competition etc). My suggestion to you us to use the search box and put in cheer bows. You will find TONS of info on what materials to use, how to make them, examples etc. That is what I did when I was starting out.

Good Luck!

also You Tube has many, many videos on making cheer bows--often detailing what level the bow is for (practice, competition, etc)

I just make grosgrain cheer bows, havent ventured into the mystique and glitz bows. It really just depends on who you are making the bows for and what they like long tails or short tails and what material the bow is made of.

When I use 2.25" ribbon I use around 27-30" depending on how long the tails will be.
bow sizes range from 5"-7" across, tails ranging from 4"-7" long with 5.5" being pretty standard.

My Texas size bow is made with 3 inch ribbon bow measures 7" across with 6.5" tails (measuring from center knot to end of the tails)
I'll attached a pic of one
