Smile Ribbon for pony tails

I am putting some bows in a kids clothes swap starting tomorrow. I took my things today and a couple of different women asked if I could bring just ribbon with the ends sealed for older girls to tie around their pony tails. They said that they buy them every where they see them and that they do not want them attached to a pony-o. They requested 1 1/2 and 7/8 inch ribbon. They said that they generally pay $2 per ribbon and that they think they are about 14-18 inches. Do any of you gals make these or have a better idea of how long the ribbon should be? One woman wanted to make sure I heat seal the ends, her statement was "anyone can buy ribbon, but knowing how to heat seal is something totally different". I did not even respond!!!!! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I took some to a sell and sold everyone but i make mine much, much longer than 14-16 inches. I slip it through the ponytail holder than wrap it around to cover it up and then tie it like you would your shoe and I like tails hanging down. It measures out at almost 3 feet to do this. I know it seems like alot but my teenager sister wears them all the time and I cut the same amount for her. She has got to have one cut in every color by now. I charged $2.50 for them. I didn't think that was bad figuring I paid $1.50 for 5 yards and got $2.50 for one yard. Now this length is for a big girl ponytail, all the hair up.

Was this 1 1/2 or 7/8 ribbon? I thought 14 -16 inches sounded short! Thanks!

I sell these to a boutique and my cuts are 26" long with slanted cuts... I do V's sometimes, but the older girls seem to like them slanted. I sell them wholesale at $2.00 a piece.

ARe you kidding??? So for my craft show coming up in November, I should just make a bunch of loose ribbons that are heat sealed? People actually want them that way?? If so - I would give it a try! I can always put them on Pony's if htey don't sell. What do you advertise them as?? Loose Ribbon streamers?

I was wondering how you package them for your boutique sales/craft shows? I want to find a good way to make them look nice - bow cards???
