Default Re: How do you ladys

I mark everything in my favorite and then I have a "recipe" book as well. Tells me all the specifics of a bow. I also like to keep one of everything on a bow board as a sample too so that I can measure if i need to or have a visual to look at.

Lost the book for a period of time so I am thinking of making a second one!!

I use all the measurements that came in my instruction book with my No Bow No Go templates. She has a chart for each bow style that gives you:
  1. Finished bow size
  2. Template size to use
  3. Ribbon length to use
  4. Which ribbon width looks best with each size bow and template
It has been the best investment I've made for my bow business. I'm so OCD about getting things the same every time and Devon's templates enables my OCD tendencies. She's such an enabler. LOL! I think my bows would look pretty wonky if I did my own measurements and if I didn't have the templates.
