Welcome to my blog, Nora's Bows, named after my Etsy shop of the same name. I will be blogging about my shop, DIY projects, recipes my family loves, shops and products I love, and design/decor. For my first post, I thought promoting my shop would be a great way to get things started.
Nora's Bows opened at the beginning of January 2013. I wanted a good selection of adorable bows for our daughter to wear, but I had a hard time finding any that I loved and wanted to pay around $10 for, so I made them instead. It was my husband who had the idea of starting my own shop. I decided to incorporate the bow ties I was making for our son as well, and that's how Nora's Bows was started.

When I am selecting fabrics for my bows, I go to a select few local shops who sell quality fabric in the styles and designs I am looking for. I only use 100% cotton fabric and I try to find colors and patterns that are on trend and in season. All of my bows are handmade by me at the time they are ordered. I take care with my bows, ensuring good quality so that they will outlast your child's play.

The bottom line, when I create hair bows and bow ties, I wouldn't use any fabric or make them at a level of quality that I wouldn't want for my own children.
