Default Adding spikes to bows

I want to try to make bow like this with the spikes but when I try it looks terrible. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Are the spikes sewn together then put between the bows? any suggestions on how to make this?

Looks like they're just sewn on an X to me. Maybe don't crease as tightly?

When I do spikes, I put them in a stack, put a stich through, spread them out to how I want them to look, stich that into place to it holds. Wrap the thread and viola, looks great everytime. It does take practise!

Thanks for the advice. I will try it this way and see. Everytime I tried to make them they never turn out even. Again thanks!

My question is at what point do you bake them?
After they are cut but before they are tied
After they are tied and exactly how you want them but before you add them to the bow???

I bake them after they are tied, cut and heat sealed. If you spray them with a light starch after baking they will lay perfectly flat and that's how they keep their shape after you've added them to the rest of the bow pieces. HTH

I have actually started baking mine after the whole bow is assembled, except for a center if I'm using one. I did this by accident the first time. I got in a hurry, and realized I had totally forgot to starch and bake, so I thought what the heck sprayed the whole thing, and baked, and now that's all I do. For me, I find it easier to shape the bow exactly the way I want it when it's all together.....HTH
