Default Re: What bows do you recommend I start with? (newbie)

my first bow style that i really wanted to learn & started was the twisted boutique... Didn't happen overnight. Practice, practice, practice... Mastered.

I could never master pinwheel... Definitely not my bow-BFF that's for sure and I stayed away from this style.

I agree with ellisandbrileesmom. Start whichever bow you feel like mastering and the site she mentioned is a good start. Michelle's free instructions will be a good start too.

The EASIEST is the bow-tie style... JMHO tho.

I say try a few different styles and see which is the easiest/most fun for you to do. I personally like doing the medium sized boutique bows because I find them easy to do but you may find something else that suits you better. Good luck! Welcome to "bow world" LOL!

I absolutely will post pics soon! getting ready for three days of 12hr shifts so I will have to post friday. My friends are gobbling them up pretty fast. I usually check out etsy and ebay for ideas or look at pics and figure them out or do my own version with the same idea. So far so good. I was mistaken I have not tried a pinwheel bow yet I'm not sure what the bow I've been making is called hahaha but its super easy. I just made a chicken bow for easter useing marabou. I really recommend the girly things site I seen someone posted for you it helped get me started. I also you homemade templates for some bows. I think I found the instructions here? Could have been the ribbon retreat site, check it out.
