Default help!!

Well as you have heard I am new at making hairbows. I made up several and took them to work I sold 49.00 dollars worth I was so excited. The ones they are interested in were clippies with mums. I really dont know which direction to go in. When some of yall make up some how do you decide which ones and how many you make up. I always make up an extra ones for my daughter too. She has a good supply now. I just love all of them and have so much fun making them but its hard to decide. This may be a real silly question but I am sitting here wanting to make some but dont know what to make. Also any advice on how to organize you ribbon I feel like I am lacking some very important colors but I think that if I get it organized I would be able to tell which ones I need. thank you so much for your advice. frances

I am new to bow making as well and have the same questions. I read the organizing thread on this site and it gave me some good ideas. I am going to place an order from United Crafts Inc today to get my stash up in basic colors. I will build prints as I go I guess. I just wish I knew if people would buy them. I've sold a few at work and I have them in a shop but who knows. At least I have a little girl who can where what I dont sell. I feel like Im no good when I look at all the pros on here. Guess practice makes perfect

I feel the same way,practice practice. My little girl has one for every outfit now!!haha. Thanks I will check into the organization I think my basic colors are the ones that I am missing. There are so many that can do amazing things with ribbon I just hope I can be half as good as they are. Let me know how things are going for you and any advice you can pass along would be great.

Definitely all your basic colors. I started with only 1.5 and lots of 3/8. Now I have most everything. Plus a lot of stuff I dont need because of group buys! LOL! Get lots of alligator clips and headbands. If I remember anything else, I will post it. Wish I could help more but Im fairly new too. Welcome and have fun!

I mostly buy solid color ribbon, it seems to be what sells the best. I personally love polka dots but I guess solid is easier to match than prints and dots. I keep my ribbon seperated in small rubbermaid containers. So much easier to grab the black box if that is what I need at the time. I have a bigger box for all of my oinks, since I have so many shades of pink. Hope that helps a little.
