Default Velvet hairbows... why can't I figure this out..

Hi! I've been making hairbows for a little while now and doing fairly ok, or so I thought!! I just had a customer request a set of 3" black velvet hairbows. I am having SOO much trouble! Is there a trick that I'm missing somehow? Maybe I just have crappy ribbon. (it was from Walmart... I got desperate LOL!). Does anyone know of a good supplier for velvet?

Thanks in advance!

I don't have any tips on how to make a bow with velvet (haven't done it yet!) but I know when I purchase mine I will get it from http://www.ArtisticRibbon.com. They have imported Swiss velvet and that is supposed to be top of the line. Their prices are pretty good - but you have to buy a certain quantity to get the wholesale pricing.

I order all my other ribbon from them and have been very happy with their service.

Good luck!

You may be able to get some swiss velvet ribbon from Etsy. Search under supplies. It is pricier per yard to do it this way, but you can get enough for these bows w/o having to reach a minimum elsewhere.
