Default Re: Cheer Bows??

The bows I make are about 7 - 8 inches across the top. The one pictured in my DDs and friends photo was almost 9. The coach wanted them big with short tails. It didn't have any sequins in it, but it had 3" white base with a 1 1/2" gold and 1 1/2" white fused to it with a 7/8" garnet down the center. It sure was a whole lot of bow, but honestly even with all the product in it, I don't think I would have charged any more than $15 for it with some sequins. Since it was my DDs team, I did them for the cost of ribbon and supplies.

What other people charge is completely up to them. I guess I do not give us cheer bow makers enough credit. I see these beautiful boutique bows that members make on this site and think; "WOW, that is a beautiful bow!". Seems so much more difficult than a cheer bow.
