Follow the back seem on the hood and rip the seem, keeping the tip of the hood in place as it was overlocked and it made for a neat seem.
Measure from the tip of the hood right down the back of the hoodie to get the right length for your spine, stopped where the bottom band begins. Using a black pen draw on your felt the shape of your spine, make it to the desired length. Now cut a second piece of felt to the right length and so you have two sides.
Tack the two pieces together, then with a matching thread, follow your pen lines with a straight stitch, to make your spine. When you are making zig-zag shapes it is worth keeping your needle in the fabric at the change of direction points and so you can swivel it around to the next direction.
Unpick the tacking and then follow the sewing line with your scissors to get rid of any excess fabric. Cut off the tip of the triangles (making sure you don't cut through the sewing) so that when you push it through, the tips are sharp.
Pull through the spine to the right side and using a pencil or fat crochet hook (like me) you can push through the triangles so that the tips are as sharp as possible.
Attach your spine to the hoodie by putting the felt against the right side of the hoodie at your cut edge, making sure the triangle spikes face into the hoodie. Follow the edge of your cut middle part of the hoodie and pin into place. Then put the other half of the jumper on top, making sure that any join points are in the same place and keep the bottom of your hoodie in line with each other. Pin or tack into place.
