|Our resident Fairy in the woods|
As you may know imaginative play is a big part of our children's lives and of course having wings to be a fairy, pixie, butterfly or other fantastical creature is a must in any child's dress up box.
We have had various bought ones over the years that are made from a wire frame that inevitably get bent out of shape and don't sit right for the children to imagine with properly, unless of course you are in the fairy hospital having your broken wing mended.
So I thought I would make these organza and ribbon wings. Now of course they don't have to be only for fairies, but they can be for your charming butterfly or pixie as they need arises.
Anyway our children have loved them and waited up late last night to actually try them on, well Myffy and Corbyn as Moran and Arwen were asleep by then.
Below is the tutorial for making these wings. It really will only take 10 mins once you have your supplies ready. But only if your over locker and sewing machine LOVE you, as mine don't!
The longer one is sewn on the middle of the top edge with the folded part being sewn on so the lengths can be tied around the body.
These are my own design and I would love to see you enjoy these with your fairy or insect lovers. Please do remember if you use them for any other use.
I hope these instructions are easy to follow for you butif not I would be happy to give more instructions, just leave a comment or e-mail me.
Blessings to you and your homes,
