My friend sent me a link to this blog http://www.prudentbaby.com/2011/04/how-to-make-beautiful-dress-up-wings.html#more and voila – wings for Alex. These wings provide perfect dress up fun.
I could only vaguely remember the blog when I rushed off to the hobby store for fabric. It’s been about a month since I last saw it. However, this is simply how I operate. I skim a recipe and then months later I happen to have some of the ingredients in the house and I slap something together that resembles the recipe I read. It always turns out tasty ;-)
I don’t have access to a sewing machine right now, so I bought fabric glue and some pretty (and cheap) fabric. I free-hand drew a semi-circle on the fabric. I made progressively smaller semi-circles on other colors. Then I drew the “feather” shapes on the semi-circles and cut them out. I positioned the feathers and glued them down. Then I sewed on hand and shoulder straps.
Tomorrow I will post Kristiana’s wings.
