Default marabou fur?

Has anyone used Marabou fur to make a hairbow? I have seen it done and want to order some but not sure how you would add it to a hairbow

Hi there,
I've never used it, but this lovely lady from
oh*my*gosh*goodies ebay shop uses it in her hairbows. (Only saw it today) Worth doing an ebay search to have a look. Not to mention she has absolutely gorgeous ribbon!

Yes, I do in some of my little bows. I think the maribou is super cute, especially the curly poofs. In fact, last week I was working on an order and accidentally got searing hot glue on my stomach. I instinctively reached toward it, and got maribou stuck to the glue. The only thing I could do was pull it off, and the skin came with it. Eek!

Yes. I've done it on a number of bows. Depending on the size or style of the bow I'll add a lot of marabou or just a touch. I like to use the kind that comes on a strip (from JoAnn's) vs. the boa style. I just cut some pieces off and strip back some of the fur so there is a "stem" to hot glue to the bow.

I hope that helps.

Another tip I learned on here was to tape around the marabou where you will be cutting to eliminate a mess.
