| | Re: Do you starch your bows and spikes?
I haven't made many bows yet, but I use fabric stiffener on most of them (except the pony-o's). I find it gives them a crisper look.
Also, it's been my experience that the stiffener darkens the colors somewhat. I had two identical bows sitting side-by-side.. one sprayed, one not.. and the colors were slightly different.
