Default How long does it take to make a bow?

I've made bows for 4 years but only recently found this site!

I've realised that so many people do things differently but get great results, I just wondered if usiing different methods shortened or lengthend the time proccess of making a bow.
so do you sew or tie? bake or not? use templates or mark out?

How long does it take you to make a pair of pairs using your methods?
Just curious??

I marked out my measurements, sew and don't bake or starch. One pair of bows like the set pictures takes about 45 minutes from start to finish.

1st off - your bows are wicked cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It depends on what type of bow I am making. I can whip out pinwheels in no time. Korkers obviously take a little longer with everything involved. Flower loop bows take about 30 minutes with the most time spent cutting the ribbon. I have as of yet to attempt the gorgeous bows that you have made!!
