Make a spike bow with grosgrain ribbon
This pretty bow looks a little like a snowflake and would be nice on a soft fold over elastic headband for a Christening. You can make it with any width ribbon you like.
You will need
5 lengths of grosgrain ribbon 12cm long by 22mm wide
lighter to seal the ends
needle and thread with thread knotted.
Pinch your ribbon together. Pull your thread through and tie off and knot to hold the pinched ribbon. Continue with all 5 lengths of grosgrain ribbon. Then sew each centre pinched ribbon together and tie off and knot. You may need adjust the centre and pinch out along the grosgrain ribbon. Once your have it sitting how you like. Spray with starch fabric spray and bake at 110° for 25 minutes leave in oven to cool. This will stiffen and hold your ribbon in place.
Once you have baked your ribbon you can now embellish the centre and attach a hair clip to the back
When making a layered bow I like to make the spikes a different way to this bow.
