I know they're not technically clothes, but whatever.

Anyone have any good hints at how to make the "boutique bows"?

It feels like something I ought to be able to figure out on my own - and I have made some - but they don't turn out like the ones you see on ebay and such.

I even went so far as to buy a pdf instruction set once. The chicks first word of advice was to buy an EZ bow maker. THAT p*ssed me off enormously. "Hey, thanks for your $9.95! Now go spend another $10 so you can make the bows I said I could teach you to make!!".

Grrrrrr.

I also don't want to spend the $$ again because I just want to whip up some basic bows. I don't need/want to know how to make those gigantic, layered things that make kids look like potted plants or like a ribbon monster is trying to eat their head.  Wink

No offense, of course, to anyone who does like that kind. The bunny and I just aren't frilly, girly-girls.

 Grin I just about fell down laughing! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks some are slightly too much. I like to think of it as a cupcake on their heads!

I lived in the South for 6 yrs before DH's job relocated us so I guess I'm immune to the bows as big as their heads.  I don't even roll my eyes any more.  Wink  LOL!  Luckily we escaped before the pants w/layered ruffles hit.  Ridiculous!

It's definitely a southern thing, or at least started there. I see it everytime we go back home to Texas.  I love that website by the way, so nice of her to offer it free and not charge some insane amt. of money.

I use the site mentioned above (aka. Girly Things).
One thing that helps is to buy a wood burning tool ($10 at w-mart).
After cutting the ribbon just quickly rub the tool across the cut edge and it will seal the ribbon with a professional touch.  Nothing does better in my eyes.

I just posted a tutorial in completed projects. They are for basic boutique bows but are a great starting off point before you get into stacking and layering bows.
