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!

I normally make one at a time. I don't have a ton of orders. I have enough though - since I work full time. However, I have a wholesale order that is all duplicates of ones I made for her before. I made a ton of the base bows the other night. I guess that fast and efficent comes with practice too - I am relatively new to the bow world.
PLEASE DO NOT SELL TO ME!!! NEED a 12 step program!! Anyone know of a good one?!!? Ribbons and Stuff Anonymous?!?!
