I also love making them. I can't even tell you how many thousands I've done in the last 6 months! Yes, I kork all day...in between taking care of the kids. My dh helps roll at night Just give it a try and see what you think.

They sell VERY well for me.. so I have to make alot, and its the biggest pain in the butt! The hardest for me is cutting... and cutting and cutting.. and my needles break or bend after i do 10 or so.

LOL...and considering I lost all feeling in my thumb after a wood burner accident nearly 2 years ago sealing korkers....I now really despise them!!!

You just have to make sure that you can charge enough for your time :-)
Ditto!! If I break it up it seems like it takes less time/effort!! They are a PITA to make - but I agree - oh so cute!!

Korkers used to be my favorite bows to make they were one of the first ones I did and I didn't think they were that bad....until I did them for a cheer squad 75 korkers later I was done now I curse the dowel rods every time I open up my closet, and just order them when I need some, but if you are only doing a few they can be fun
