Most bow shop “About” pages seem to go something like this:
“I started making bows when my daughter/niece/granddaughter was born because I could not find accessories for her that were cute/trendy/affordable enough. All of our friends loved them and wanted me to make some for them. I expanded to selling online, and that is how our shop came to be.”
Well, that is not my story. I’m a boy mom. I had my first son in 2000, my second son in 2003 and my third son was born in 2011. I make bows because I LOVE making bows.
I have always loved making things. I consider myself a crafter, not an artist. I cannot draw or paint, but I can make beautiful things with a needle and thread. I love making quilts and sewing Halloween costumes and cross stitching are a few of my hobbies.
I have always loved beautiful hair bows and headbands, but after having three boys, I thought bows would never be in my future. After years of sewing nautical quilts, robot blankets and car print drawstring toy bags for my boys, one day I decided that just because I didn’t have anyone who could wear bows did not mean I was not allowed to make bows.
I started researching and through trial and error I taught myself how to make beautiful, professional looking bows and headbands. I hope your daughter/niece/granddaughter loves wearing my bows as much as I love making them.
