I use 2-inch pieces of 3/8'' in my "regular" korkers, and I use 35-40. That said, yours look great IMO so I don't know that I'd change anything! When I do "mini"s I use 1/4'' and still do 35-40, but maybe do 1'' to 1.5'' at the most.

HTH!

I think yours are adorable! It really is a matter of preference, yours and, of course, your customers! I think that is why I like korkers so much, there really isn't a right or wrong.

Thanks i only just started making bows the korkers of course sell really well no one here had seen one. So i got the jump on other bow makers here. I usually spray a half mixture of water and fabric stiffiner before i bake them and after i make them i respray them and then hang them upside down.. It makes them really stiff.

new to korkers, so i am using the 12 in. dowels, is there a certain length to cut off to wrap around these or do you just wrap the ribbon and then cut it off. probably a stupid question but i want to make sure it all turns out right before wasting.

I wrap right from the spool, so no waste!
