Default How long does it take?

Im very new to bow making & have a question. How long does it usually take to make a bow? i just spent the last 1.5 trying to make my 1st Loopy Surround bow. Don't worry, I won't scare you with a pic!LOL!

I ordered the BBM yesterday, so hopefully, that'll help a bit!

thanks so much

It doesn't take me long at all now, maybe under 2 minutes for a basic bow and about 10-15 minutes for a big bow with spikes. However, I've been making bows non-stop for a year and a half it seems! When I first started it would take me F O R E V E R to make bows. It just takes practice and soon enough you will develop a style and work path that is quick!

It used to take me forever- then I compared my pics with others- and decided that the surrounds weren't my cup of tea. So now they I avoid them.

i'm pretty new too but surround i'm okay with the spikes are okay you know I can't get the woodburner to do the tips right the lighter makes the curvy (no complaints yet!!!) I am now trying the twisted bow can't seem to get it yet but you know practice makes perfect. but I never timed myself to know how long it takes to make a bow usually I pre prep myself and make alot at one time. I usually do everything in pairs too so who knows. sorry I know I didn't answer your question....
