Default Ribbon pony-os - really that simple

I keep seeing the ribbon pony-o's (hair elastic with ribbon tied on). Is that really all there is to it? I just can't imagine people paying money for something that would take them a minute to do. Am I missing something here or do people just want the convenience of not doing it themselves? TIA!

I've never sold any, but that's mostly because I haven't put any out yet. I sew mine though....it's not simple tying on my end. HOWEVER, I do agree that anyone can make them (at least what I do) pretty easily. The advantage that I have is that I have 15,000 + yards of ribbon to choose from. The average person doesn't.

I agree that the customer doesn't have the amount of ribbon on hand that we do. I have a few return customers who love the ponytail streamers. I also figured out after I started really making bows that a lot of mommas just don't have the crafting ability to do hair bows OR the time/energy. I do lol

agree with the other 2 ladies But then again, some ribbon Pony-Os doesn't just come with 3 ribbons. Plus, the length used, as per customer choices i.e 7", 8", 9".

Printed ribbons don't come cheap either compared to Solids.

I.e : Littlebowpeeptails lol, Now, that's alot of ribbons!

I had a customer that tied there's on, and once it kept coming untied and looking messy, they came to us for sewed ones.

I haven't done the plain/printed ribbon ones but I do korker ribbons. I kork 1 yard, seal both ends, I've only done school colors and call them spirit tails. I sew several strands together then do a center knot and sew and glue it for added strength. I usually do 6, 3 of each color. It's super easy and I sell a lot of them.

Thanks for your help ladies. I guess I didn't relaize they were sewn (I'm new and ignorant! Do you just sew them in the middle by hand or on your machine? Then you tie them on the elastic, right? Is there a special knot that keeps them from coming undone? Thanks again. Y'all are so helpful and patient.

I don't think I've made any. I like them though.
