Rabom Pinwheel Bow + BowBoard Tutorial!

Pinwheel Bows are easy to fold and can be made in so many sizes! Using the Rabom Bow Board, find your favorite bow-size and ribbon-width and start making some of the sweetest big girl and baby Pinwheels!

You’ll need the following:

  • 5 inch bow board
  • 1.5 inch ribbon
  • ribbon for knot
  • scissors, glue gun, needle + thread, lighter

Instructions:

  • Start your Pinwheel the same way you start your Boutique Bow: starting at the bottom right corner, line your ribbon up to the edge and run the rest of your length of ribbon up and to the left.
  • Trim your Bottom Right edge along the edge of the BowBoard, using it to guide the angle of your cut. Seal that edge, clip in place with alligator clip.
  • Continue to wrap the ribbon around the BowBoard until you have looped both sides twice and your remaining tail of ribbon is running off the Upper Left corner of your BowBoard. Clip in place as you go!
  • Trim Upper Left tail the same way you trimmed Lower Right tail – using the BowBoard as your guide, trim edge parallel to BowBoard, seal end, clip in place.
  • Now you can either run 4 to 8 evenly-spaced stitches down the Center of your bowboard, pull bow off BowBoard and accordion-fold starting in the center OR – if you have sewn 8 stitches – you can attempt to scrunch bow by pulling thread. The accordion-fold method will give you more control but may require practice. You may get lucky with the Pull-and-Scrunch method! But we recommend accordion-folding, wrapping your knot once, and organizing your creases carefully into place.
  • With a Pinwheel Bow, more creases (or folds, or peaks-and-valleys) are better! You are working with a LOT of ribbon here.
  • Wrap center, tie-off on back, insert or glue your alligator clip to back. Trim ends of necessary. Place knot of your choice and you’re there!
