Okay you may be wondering where I have been well I thought that I would post picture to show you



there is nothing worse than korkers, and the lady who order these rang me today with another order for mini

korkers and more bows, I told her she would have to wait a couple of weeks until I catch up

I feel for you, but on the other hand would love a big order!

Do you sew or tie them?

Shocked OMG! Shocked
That is an amazing feat, I love the look of korkers but making them is something else, they are so time consuming.
Congratulations!

I just love korkers and don't mind making them. But then again I am not making 220 at a time. 20 maybe.

Do you work out how many strands of korker ribbon you need in advance or do you just wing it?

With most of then they are lots of 10 or 5 of the same colours so I first work out approximately how many rolls

all the ribbon and thats why sometimes I end up with a couple of extra lenghts of korked ribbon which I never

get around to use as justdont have time to go through and sort if all out! So I just keep piling it up.

Hey Jodie,

with my korkers I try and stick to one ribbon type which I buy it is alot softer than most of the China ribbons so it looks more fluffy done in the korkers. If you would like to try some of this ribbon I have it here.

I wish that I had time to do an ebook, but life is crazy here I have to get out an order for 80 wrapped headbands and I hate doing these nearly as much as korkers.
