I See A New Addiction Starting!!!

I am addicted to making bows!!!!! It first started with the korker bow I made Melody for Christmas time and now I have started to take it up again after a hat making binge.

One of my friends (Melanie) on CMF sent me some korker ribbon and other ribbon and I've just recently wanted to play around with it. I have found some free and bought a few tutorials on boutique bow making. Here is the one I found most helpful. It's a little store called Little Tootsie Boutique on YouCanMakeThis. It has LOTS of pictures and really easy to understand instructions. It has like 90 pages of instructions for around $8.00!!!!! I like that because I am a visual learner.

Korker bows are a lot of fun and you really can't mess them up to make them look bad. The other bow that I folded isn't perfect but I'm pretty proud of myself for not giving up on it and the bow turned out really pretty.

Melody picked out some ribbon a bit back and asked me to make the korker bow for her birthday.... it's 2 1/2 months away!!! I love that kid.

They look great! One of my friends does this and I refuse to pick it up because I know I would be equally addicted to it!
