At least someone seems happy to see them! There are some really good ones on the blog, huh??? Did you see the 5 point ribbon flower??? Darn near everything is on that page.

LMBO @ cartwheels. What you said was "Thank you for all the tips. I have found a lot of free instructions" which sounded like you already knew about them. And if you had, no biggie. I wish I would have had that blog when I started. You should see some of my "training bows" They were Bad! Yes, I made bad a proper noun. They were that Bad. Have you made anything yet?

I made quite a few bows for myself in high school and college, but that was... *cough*20*cough* years or so ago. A few years ago I followed instructions from the Girly Things site to make some bows to match my girls' Easter dresses. (My Mom helped with some of the sewing parts, we made a headband and put a loopy bow on it, the headband was awesome... sort of like a big scrunchy, gathered white eyelet over elastic... the bow, not so much... LOL.)

THIS time around, I've made 2 flowers and a pony-o thingie... gonna try to get pics of them tomorrow and post 'em. Haven't attempted a true "bow" lately, though.

(I had already heard of at least some of the links you posted, but I did make note of all of them so I can check them more carefully later.)

There are tons of free resources out there:
http://www.girlythingsbows.com/
http://makebowsandmore.blogspot.com/
http://www.hair-hardware.com/
http://www.theribbonretreat.com/cust..._projects.aspx

Just do a search on here and on google for "free hair bow instructions".
Then pay for what you can't find and what people won't share with you (chances are if they won't share it, they paid for it & can't)
Thanks for the links!! I had two of these bookmarked but my computer crashed, so I lost all of my TONS of bookmarks

So I'm glad to have someone remind me of a few that I had on there--and it's great to have a few new ones to go check out!! THANK YOU!!

I had purchased her tut. I wouldn't say it was a total waste of money, but a little waste of money. She does include some good info, and if you are a visual person, you may find it helpful with the DVD. However, as all the ladies here had said, you can find many, if not all, at many free website. And I don't like the end products, after discovering the forum and see so many beautiful bows, hers not amazing. So I would suggest you not to buy that.

Hi there. I saw your comment about Emily's course "secrets to bow making success" and you said that people were not impressed because you can get the info for free. Can you let me know where you heard that? She is a good friend of mine actually and I know for a fact that has over 95% satisfaction rate, so I was just curious as to where you came up with that and if you would be so kind as to update your comment to reflect the truth. I'm not trying to be rude at all, I just don't think its fair to say negative things that are not true so I thought I would ask kindly about this.

I think you must be thinking about another course. I've never heard anyone say that and unless you have purchased it, you couldn't really know. Also, she does have a 60 day return policy.

Thanks a bunch!
Jenn
