Default Spikes for layered bows...should be easy, but NOT turning out!

OK, so I have been doing the layered bows for a while now. However, after seeing some awesome work on here, I am rethinking how I do my spikes. I have seen tutorials where they layer them in the X pattern, sew through the center and wrap (What I have been doing). I have also seen some that just glue them in the X pattern and that's it. No cinching(sp?) or anything.

Does anyone have a good tutorial or know where I can find one? My spikes point upward sometimes and just don't look so uniform like some I have seen on here.

i do mine like this. I cut them and then i put them in what ever order i want them in. i stack them up and i take the one that is going to be the middle spike and i fold it in half so that i can get my center. I put a straight pin in it and then i get all of my other spikes and i do the same. i put a piece of eraser on the back of the straight pin to hold it all together. i fan out my spikes . And i run my needle down the middle. I then remove my straight pin. I squish the ribbons onto the needle and i pull my needle through i wrap my thread around 2 or 3 times and im done. I can post some pics if you want of how i do mine.

This is exacty how I do mine
It's similar to the way in Lynn's spike tutorial on her blog, except I use the straight pin like you described above. And I also sew through and then wrap around

Ok so this is similar to what doing. I believe I learned it from the same tut you both are referring to. However I changed it up a bit bc they weren't straight like I have seen. Like when you tie, the two ribbons that are on the outside of the X (the ones that will be on either side of your center wrap) dd
don't line up straight! One flops back or forward and they aren't straight. Sometimes one goes diagnol and the other is straight up where it's Supp to be!

also what i do is when im wrapping the middle i wrap them loosely and then i get the middle and using both hands i wiggle it back and forth so that the creases all line up. Does that make sense. I find that it helps all the ribbons line up and fall into place. After i do that then i pull the thread tight.

Yea that makes sense. Hmm. I have the tut in my bookmarks I will have to re-read it all. I'm doing the pin through the middle, fan, and wrap. I guess I need to try to line up my creases like you are suggesting. . Thanks! I will go try it

I think it's ok to post a link, just not others' pics. This is the tut we were talking about. I have tried and tried. My spikes just aren't turning out right. I saw your pics of your bows on another post, and they look fantastic.

Also, how do you all get your v's to look so good? They are all the same it seems like. I use my wood burner, but don't have anything to use as a template to make my v's the same everytime bc it will just burn everything So right now I pinch the ribbon in half, and snip at an angle, and heat seal with a lighter.
