Default Need Help for a beginner.

Hello, I am very new at bow making. Actually I haven't even made a bow yet. I have bought a few for my daughter and would now like to start making them. I don't know anything about it at all.

Is there a basic starting thread anywhere? I need to know what supplies I need, and how to make a basic bow before I get fancy and try something like the butterfly.

If anyone could help or point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

Welcome! A lot of the free information you'll find right here from Michelle will be a great way to get started! Once you've dabbled a bit, then you can decide if you'd like to buy instructions. There are lots of those, TOTTs is a good one.
Good luck and please ask if you have any questions...we're all learners and all teachers!
