Default How to start making bows? Please help!

I am always buying my daughters new bows and stuff for there hair(just small ones for toddlers), but I would love to start making my own. I am having troubles finding good if any instructions on how to make just simple bows. I was just wondering how everyone started learning how to properly make them and what materials you all need to make them. I cam across the website howtomakebows.com. Has anyone heard of that. I would really like to get a book on how to make all them. Does anyone know of a good one???
Or if anyone is will to show me how to make korkers, tuxedo, and double bows?
Thanks
