PostSubject: Korker bows   Thu Aug 26, 2010 12:19 pm

Hi ladies,
I have tried a few bows and i cant say that i find them very easy but im determined 2 get the hang of it. i do love making korker bows though and was wondering if it is best to sew each piece onto your needle (i have been doin this but they dont seem to look full enough when i finish) or do you prefer to lay out the thread and wrap them up and tie them? I find this way quite difficult but like i said im determined 2 learn just havent had alot of spare time with all my cake orders.

i sew mine i stack all my pieces onto the needle (about 25) then squeeze them together and pull the thread through thensew a few times back an forth until nice and tight. the more pieces the fuller it is going to be i think it was on here some one posted they use about 4o. also i think it depends what size peices you use i use about 3 to 4 inches

I wrap my korkers it is alot easier than sewing, I use approx 35 to 4o pieces and they are about 5.5cms in lenght.

I think that sewing them doesnt bring them up as nice and high as wrapping them
