On Etsy since 2010

Katiebug Bows, LLC - Where it all began

My daughter, Katie, was born in 2008. I loved walking through the boutique stores and looking at all the adorable outfits for little girls. I was born and raised in the Carolinas so I was very drawn to beautiful smocked dresses but they are not inexpensive! Every now and then I would splurge for a special occasion outfit but I couldn't bring myself to pay $10.00 for a hair bow after paying $70+ for a dress!! I was convinced that the first time I put that bow in Katie's hair it would get terribly dirty or worse- lost!

So, I had the brilliant idea that I could just make my own bows for less!! No problem, right? Well, I quickly learned two lessons. First, making a good looking hair bow is harder than it looks and, second, the only way to make it for less money is to buy supplies in bulk. Before I knew it my house was covered in ribbon as I kept buying all the cute ribbon that I found.

At that point I clearly hadn't saved any money but I had a new hobby. I started to wonder if I could sell any of my creations as a way to cover my costs but I wanted to make sure I didn't ask anyone to pay for something if it wasn't a really consistent and good quality product. I practiced for six months before I sold my first bow in April, 2010 and Katiebug Bows was born!

All of the products in my Etsy shop are hand made by me in my smoke free and pet free home. My hair bows and ponytail streamers are all hand sewn and I heat seal all exposed edges so your bows will still look great after months of wear.

Thanks so much for shopping with me and for sharing my shop with your friends! Word of mouth referrals are the greatest compliment!

    I am a stay at home mom to two wonderful kids. When my daughter was born I tapped into my creative side because I wanted to have bows for every occasion without having to pay the high boutique store prices. Now I share my talent with you! Enjoy!
