Default Re: What mistakes have you learned from since making/selling bows

Organize everything lol!!! I'm still working on organizing but nothing is more frustrating than sitting down to work and realizing you don't have all your supplies on hand.

Be confident in yourself and your ability! Take the time to learn and do it right, but don't undersell yourself if you plan on selling your items.

Take pride in your work, if your own children wouldn't wear it, don't sell it! Make sure to heat seal or otherwise seal your ribbons, no loose ends, neatly lined etc...

Research! Research your market, your costs, where to buy supplies, don't be afraid to ask for a sample from a supplier. Finding great supplies takes time, but is so worth it in the end.
