Bows, Bows and More Bows!

Some of you may not know that my new-found "hobby" is bow making. Not necessarily for my girls, but to sell. A few years ago at Kids Closet (consignment sale) we had a wonderful lady who made bows to sell. And then she moved and there was NO ONE consigning bows and many many people wanting them, so I decided to give the craft a whirl. It took me a while and a bit of money to start up, but once I got the hang of it, its been fun! I sold over 50 bows at the fall sale- maybe more than that, but I lost count. So, for the last month or so, I've been getting ready for the Spring Sale. I just ordered some really cute green/pink striped ribbon, so I'm exciited to see how those bows turn out. I have about 12 days left to finish up and I usually end up making more in the middle of the Sale if I see one particular color or pattern selling out each day. I sold over 15 plain black bows at the Fall Sale and only 3 of those were "pre-made." So far - this is what I have finished:

Anybody local - I'll be happy to directly sell any of my bows to you anytime and I can make anything (color/pattern/size/clip) that you want!

Very cool hobby Katie!! Do you make much $$ selling them after cost? I LOVE bows and want to try making my own this summer. Great idea!
