| | Re: Baked bows
I bake my twisted boutique bows (all sizes), loopy puff bows (after they are sewn before glue) and of course korkers. I bake my in a toaster oven in my craft room for 15-20 minutes (excluding korkers, I do those in the oven because I can do a whole lot more at a time). I use the faultless brand spray starch on everything.
Reason for baking is to maintain perky loops and beautiful shape. Before I baked everything I just starched. Well my niece was sucking on a bow that I made her for Christmas photos 2 years ago (why my SIL would let her I don't know) and when the bow dried it was ugly, bent and well ugly because it held the last shape she left it in, blehhh. Lesson learned.
