Default Spike made with fabric????

Has anyone ever made a spike (that is what I call them) for a bow by using fabric instead of ribbon? Just wondering if it would work because I am thinking the fabric is not as stiff as a ribbon. Thanks for any advice!

I've never done it but I think it would work because the spikes are just sandwiched between the bow and barrette/clip. I'm not sure about fraying though-I think I'd use pinking shears maybe or maybe fray check?? Sorry I'm not more help. It would be cool to use to match an outfit.

You could always spray the faric with that Stiffen Stuff for fabric and ribbon, as lightly or heavy as you like.

I use that on the bows I make for my Yorkies.

These are some of the first dog bows I made last week. It's what got me started looking for instructions to make bows.

When my GD came over and saw the bows I made for my dogs, she wanted one in her hair...... and the saga continues.

Use an iron-on stabilizer!* It'll be on the back of the fabric, so it won't show, but it will really help with making it stiffer and making it fray less.*

I was going to say stabilizer too :-) I use it in the small clutch purses I make and I think that would be perfect for the bows!

Those dogs are sooo cute!
