Default Re: Question about this type of bow... Help so appreciated!

For me, I lay all my spikes out how I want them to look, then use a threaded needle to sew the center in and out and in and out to form my crease, then just pull tight so the the spikes center is nicely creased. Then I wrap the thread around the center a few times and sew back through it again. I'm terrible at explaining, but you can also crease the spikes by hand, then hold the crease while you sew through it a few times. Then I either sew it or glue it to my bow. And I wrap my center around all of it. You may have to pull and straighten out the spikes to get them to lay perfectly, but once they are in position, I starch them.
