I listed on Craig's list once in the craft section and in the small business section and got 1 order. I'm sure if I would keep putting my add out there I would get more business from there. The best part is it's free.

I have girlie girl bow instructions. Do you have them too?

Thanks Shari,

I went to craigslist.org last night but seems complicated. Need more time to browse the site. Since it's free, I think I'll list there.

I don't have girlie girl bow instructions. I'd like to know if it's worth it. I love her loopy bows.

I noticed her auctions on eBay last year during BTS sale. The bows ar $18.99-$35 /pair. Now it's $12 above. I think maybe it's not BTS yet. Or maybe too many people sells on eBay so the price lowered.

Hey Michelle,

I have them, they are well done, but nothing new to gain, if you need help w/ the surrounding bows (but i saw yours and they look great) I will be glad to help. Just make two boutique bows, one large for the base one 3 1/2" for the top, spikes, and 3 surround bows made the same way as the boutique bows. Tada!!!~~mindy

Just I cannot make the perfect loopy bows like author of the instruction. Maybe I need more practice. I only made loopy bows 3 or 4 times then gave up. My dd is only 2. She's still wearing baby bows.

Thanks Mindy. I saw your boutique bow instruction. It's great.

Hey Michelle,

She makes her boutique bows with small loops on the beginning two loops and the last two are a lot larger than the first two. When finished the top loops of the bow are large and the bottom loops are smaller. Me personally I like mine bottom only slightly larger than the top, barely, barely though. I think the flow of the eye goes with the weight of the loops and having to loops backward sized like that is trying to read a book backwards. Anyways, the same boutique style is used throughout the whole bow. Glue each layer of bow together to hold it and leave the thread on the base bow very long when you tie them all together it will bury the top bow in between the surrounding bows. Her's are big, big, so use a 5" base bow, and about a 3.5" for the top and make sure you make the surround bows bigger than the 3.5" bow so it can sink into the 3 surround bows. I honestly think you have it down, just readjust your sizes. ~~Mindy--ps. thanks for the compliment.

Thanks Mindy.

I think that's the problem: size of the loopy and top bow. I'll try it.

I've never sold any loopy bows on eBay (tried several times but all failed). Not sure where I did wrong. And it's very time consuming (loopy and spike) so I gave it up.

One of my loopy bow:

The simple one would be like this:

Loopy medium hair bow : Hip Girl Boutique!, Hair Bows, Baby Hair Clips, Rockabilly Hair Accessories and more.
