Patty’s Girl Bow

Patty's Girl Bow - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

I made this bow with ribbon from the Patty’s Girl 3/8″ Ribbon Mix.

Ribbon mixes are AWESOME! I love them!

They take care of the coordinating of colors AND the amount of ribbon is perfect for a few bows.

The 3/8″ mixes are great for Korkers and Loopy Bows.

This particular bow is made using the Six Loop Hair Bow Technique in the
TOTT Hair Bow Instructions.

I started out with the Pink Solid Grosgrain and did a 4″ bow with 8 loops. To make 8 loops, I made 9 marks in my ribbon instead of just 7.

The next layer was the Apple Solid Grosgrain at 4″ with 8 loops.

This is White/Apple/Hot Pink Swiss Fun Ribbon. It is switched out from the Apple/White Swiss Dots Ribbon in the mix.

I made this bow at 3.75″ and did only 6 loops.

This is the last layer using Pink Shamrocks Ribbon.

This layer is 3 1/2″ and uses only 6 loops as well.

I stacked all the layers and wrapped my thread around to tighten it together.

Then I used the Pink Shamrock Ribbon to line my french barrette clip.

I finished off the bow by doing a knotted center using the Apple and Pink Solid Grosgrain Ribbons.

This bow is so easy to do and has very little room for error.
It always turns out super cute.

If you haven’t tried it, you need to. You’ll love it!

    Do you have to buy it to get the instructions for the loop?

    I ask because I didn’t see any set of instructions when I clicked on the link on how to make it. It just took me to a page advertising a book of how to make a bunch of bows.

      Hi Janice! Yes the instructions I used to make this bow are in the book I linked to. The tutorial is what ribbons I used and how I layered the techniques learned in the book. I hope this helps! 🙂

    I would love to make this bow, but this is an old post and when you click the link it goes to the front page of RR, Can these instructions be reposted? I just bought the TOTT Bow Maker! I am excited to start using it and would like to make these bows for St. Pattys Day. Thank you.

      Hi Antoinette! Thank you so much for your question! I love this Patty’s Girl Bow. It is so fun and SO festive! This bow is actually the same as the Six Loop Hair Bow in the TOTT Hair Bow Instructions. You can find the instructions to that bow HERE. You will have to scroll to the bottom of the page and click on “viewing it here or download the original” to see the PDF instructions. Also, to do the layers of this bow with eight loops, you will make 9 marks instead of the 7 suggested in the instructions. Good luck making this adorable bow and thank you again for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Michelle 🙂
