Default How long did it take you...

to get "good" at making bows? I just see all these pretty bows and I really want to be able to make them, but at the same time I don't want to get frustrated and quit. By the way I am a beginner

It is probably different for everybody but for me it took about a month of doing it everyday. I tried and tried and then suddenly one day they looked how I wanted them. That was only one style though. But it is now easier to perfect another kind, if that makes sense.

Good luck! Don't give up. It takes some time, but if you enjoy it then it is worth it!

I am no expert but I've been dabbling in bows for over 2 years (for personal use, not as a business). Some bows you will never get the way you want them, and some will come very easily to you. You'll develop your style, so to speak.

I know I will never ever be able to do big layered puffy bows as nicely as I'd like to. And I've come to terms with that so I focus on developing my style with other types of bows.
