Default Looking for suggestions...

I need some advice! I have a customer who wants a bow for her daughter to wear to dance class. She said big, pink, sparkly, and feminine. BUT...she doesn't want it to be stiff, she wants it to have movement.

Satin is the only material that I can think of that would have movement but I don't know how well it will keep its shape.

Any suggestions are welcome!

I'd say do a funky loopy bow with lots of different pink/sparkly/tulle/ric rac etc sticking out all over... Make sense?

What about something with a wide organza ribbon base, some curly ostrich on top of that, and some sort of center with some bling on it?

I agree with Spitfire, funky look bows are the best and have movement! Sounds like what she is asking for. I just sold one yesterday and the first thing the mom said when she saw the bow was, "Oh look, a dance bow!"

It was similar to this one, just a bit fuller.

Thanks ladies! I will have to look for a tut! What do you typically charge for these?

I'd say a funky loopy bow for sure! Doodles Bowtique sells a tut for it on etsy.

I easily sell them for $15-18. When people see them, they see the work that goes into them and don't bat an eyelash to pay that much. The larger ones I make are over 5 1/2" wide.

This bow keeps coming up and I keep trying to steer away from it, but everone is making it hard!! I think the tut is $18 and I hate to pay that much for a tut. Especially since I'm not sure if I could even make the bow. And I don't think I could sell a bow for $15. I know each area is different, but people act like $5 is a lot and that is my most expensive bow. I'm sure I'll end up buying the tut, but I'm trying not to.

I contemplated for a LONG time and tried figuring it out on my own, but the tut was well worth the money for me! I've already made back my investment in the tutorial when I sold my first bow at $18.
