Welcome to my blog!

Here you'll find my ramblings about hair bows, crafts and boutique chatter for children. In the past, I ran a children's boutique. While the recession forced the doors closes, I've never given up my passion for hair bows, smocking, dresses, etc...

With 10 years experience of hair bow making and designing, my specialty has become mini korker hair bows. While I still make hair bows of all shapes, sizes and forms, my niche is korkers. Currently, these bows are for sell directly, at craft shows, on Etsy and eBay. When time allows I do custom orders. I will also consider wholesale and retailer orders of my korker hair bows and my Facebook page. Please inquire if interested or find me at my Esty or Facebook page. Thanks for visiting!

How to Starch Hair Bows?

You may need to know how to starch hair bows due to flimsy ribbon. Some grosgrain ribbons are thin or shiny, and don't hold shape that well. Believe it or not, there are several different methods that can be used to stiffen hair bows.

This article, written by myself, discuss 5 different ways on How to Stiffen Hair Bows. I have used all 5 methods and discuss the ones that I like best and the pros and cons involved in the process. I hope that you can learn from my experience. Not only will starching a hair bow help it to hold shape, it acts as a barrier to protect the ribbon from staining, which little ones are notorious for.

You don't have to be a crafty person to apply some of the methods in the article to your little girl's bows. Some processes are as simple as 1, 2, 3... maybe even more so. Please let me know in a comment here or at the article if you have any questions.
