Hi, my name is Melissa and I make hair bows for a living!
I started making them in 2002 when my now-twelve-year-old was a baby, because I wanted one to match every outfit and I figured I was crafty enough to make them. I was working at the BEST little childrens’ clothing store at the time (still work there, actually…), and so just for fun, I stuck a few of my bows out on the rack and they sold instantly. So I put a few more, and they sold as fast as I could make them.
I figured people liked them, and that led to making them for more stores, until they were carried by Storkland for you local people; Snug as a Bug; Nana Bananaz… then stores in Houston and a couple of other towns across Texas, and now Fickle Baby, as well as my own Etsy store and Facebook page.
I like to think my bows are better than most, because they’re wired and glued to NOT fall apart; they’re heat-treated on the ends so they will NOT fray (you can even wash them in the washing machine), and I use the BEST ribbon made in the USA. They are ALL symmetrical because I measure each and every one, and uniform so that every single one looks exactly like the others.
Yes, you can find cheap bows out there; I’ve bought them. They fray. They fall apart. They are sloppy and homemade looking. The $1 bows HAVE to be made in third-world countries by children slaving in a sweat shop, for THAT price. You get what you pay for…
These are my solid-color grosgrain bows and the sizes they come in!
|This is my ‘small’ bow, otherwise known as the ‘Allie’ bow! Everybody says this is “the perfect size!” Big enough to show up; small enough that a toddler can’t feel it moving around on her head and yank it out of her hair! Comes on an alligator clip.|
|Here in Texas, the Annie bow is a ‘medium’ bow. We like ’em big here, y’all… Comes on a 70mm French Clip barrette.|
|The Katie bow is my biggest bow… mostly. 😉 I CAN make one bigger, but this is the ‘large’ I keep in stock! Comes on an 80mm French Clip barrette.|
|This is my ‘medium toddler’ bow, perfect for little ones without much hair, but 12-year-olds have taken a liking to them too. Just don’t let them know they’re ‘toddler’ bows… this is the ‘Micah’ bow. Comes on an alligator clip.|
|My ‘large toddler’ bow… perfect for my one-year-old, ‘Susie’… or her 12-year-old big sister. Comes on an alligator clip.|
I would LOVE to give you a chance to try out these hair bows and see for yourself… they’re the best!
So I’m giving away TWELVE of the ‘Susie’ bows, my most popular and versatile bow that looks great on ANY age child, in your choice of colors! Want six sets of ponytail bows? Fine! Want twelve matching bows for your favorite sports team? Great! Or if you want one bow for each of your twelve daughters to wear while you tour the country playing the violin… Perfect! It’s up to you!
