You want the first bows that you sale to be really good becasue this is what is going to bring your customers back. I think it is half & half. Half you are born with and half a skill that you can teach yourself. But neither will develop without tons and tons and did I mention tons of practice. hang in there and keep practicing.
Thanks for the advice! Yes, that's what I'm planning on doing at the show I'm going to - take a ton of the baby clippies and character bows and also tutu's and bow hangers that I've made.

Practice does make perfect! Some of the things I thought were impossible when I first started I can now churn out in no time...I work 8-5 (or longer) and between my hubby, 2-year old and school full-time I haven't had much time to practice but luckily my husband is very supportive and doesn't gripe when I'm up every now and then till 2 or 3 in the morning messing with it!
