My mom owned a flower shop when I was growing up. We made bows freehand to put on plants and in arrangements. When I started making them to sell, mom and I sat down and whipped out a couple hundred while we visited with each other one night using the ribbon we both had on hand.

My SIL always had my neice in bows...so when I found out I was having a girl in 2008, I got to work. It has been a constant learning curve. I honestly wish I could go back to those first bows I made and sold and get them back so I could fix them!

I've always loved making crafty type things, so I started with the intention of selling if I was any good, but to also to give myself somethign to do. Now I sell at shows and online and still really enjjoy the "me" time I get when I make bows.

Definitely started as a hobby for me (and a fairly new one). I sell to a couple of girls at work that have daughters about the same age as my youngest. So far just a few boutique bows and turkey clips.

It started as a hobby. I wanted to get my DD a beautiful bow for her pictures. I scoped out a few boutiques and the bows I wanted were $30 I couldn't believe that and I knew I could make it! My mom made bows when I was younger so I immediately ran out and picked up ribbon. My first bows were HORRIFIC! But people still asked where'd I get them. I kept practicing and now it's a pretty lucrative business!

Smile Re: How did you learn to make Bows?

I started making bows after getting laid off from work as something to do. I was self taught and then as I decided to start making bows to sell, I started using tutorials and I practice A LOT!

Like most ladies it started as a hobby and then slowly expanded.
Did research online and then a whole bunch of trial and error
