yes, tiny loopy bow - I would think it's 1/4 for the small and 3/8 for the center loops, she's using the white plastic barrettes with teeth that you can get at hairparts.

Re: I got a "warning" on Etsy, be careful!!

I'm sure a lot of people on etsy got them and not just you. Using the name in your title or your search terms will flag you. Crazy - Disney has people that searches the sites too.
