You should time yourself

I do mine sorta like an assembly line, except I am the only person working the line...LOL

I fold and tie all my bows, then I go back and sew up through the center of all, then I bake all (if they are twisteds, I do not really bake my others), then I add the center knot to all then add the clip to all....

I do 20+ at a time and I would say 2-3 hours usually to complete all depending on how many I do, and what style, twisteds take a little longer (shaping and baking).

Make sure you know how long you spend so you can calculate in your time!
