And when you gather your ribbon in the middle...DON'T RUSH..that was always my problem squishes everything together and its hard to spread apart your loops afterwards especially with just a plain style bow like that . You may want to try a boutique style for more loop in your bow.
And maybe you may want to cut your korkers just a tiny bit shorter so they bounce and not hang. But I'm just giving constructive criticism...I think your bows are adorable...great combos.
I agree with all the above, you definitely have an eye for color. The only other thing I would suggest is find a consistant way to photograph your bows, I know that's not about bow making but it's all about presentation. Pics are dark and as a consumer seeing hands in photos is a no no to me. Try taking pics outside in the sun against your pretty fabric you have in the other pics.
