Default Re: Everyone's Latest Challenge?

well i'm just working on inventory and perfecting my assembly line. I made 30 bows in 3 days, which i dont think is too bad. Day one, cut all ribbon including the ribbon to line clippies and the center knots, and make the center knots. Day 2, fold all the bows and get them perfect. I had to do that in like 3 sittings though, it was kinda hard to do that. Then day 3, I glued and assembled everything. It took 2 or 3 sittings to do that too.

But I was pretty happy with the way they turned out. And I got alot of stock made. THey were simple basic boutique and pinwheel bows.

Oh and I can't get my bows right either but oh well...that is why I like the piggy bows!

I'm trying to find a good picture of one. Basically it is a little bow, about 3 inches across and not too fancy. I make them in sets of two so my daughter can wear them in her tiny pigtails(since she decided to cut off her beautiful long hair into a pixie cut last year). They are so easy to make and don't cost a lot so if she gets it dirty or loses it it isn't a big deal!

I am trying to learn how to market my products! I really need this to be a second income for my family, or to daycare it is. Let the Mommy guilt begin.

Butterflies are hard. I use a two pronged alligator clip and after I fold the top two loops, then try to stick the bottom two in without letting the first two go. Once I like what it looks like I stitch the middle. It takes some practice and I'm still not perfect. Even harder is putting the korker body on.....ugh!!!
