Default Re: Any advice/tricks making spikes

Make your spikes 1" longer than the width of the topper bow.
Dovetail & heat seal
Mark the middles of each spike
Stack them all on a needle (to keep them even!)
Fan them out as you'd like (symmetrically of course)
Stitch to crease
Tie off
starch w/ sta-flo (or Niagara works well too)
