I designed these dress-up wings for the 'small project' section of small magazine, summer 2010 edition. This free magazine went live today- you can read it here. I was pretty excited to be asked to submit a project, as i've loved this magazine for a long time. There are always many pages of lovely photographs, ideas, artwork and general eye-candy.
These wings were first made for Keira as part of a dress-up costume. She wanted to 'be an insect' one day, so I made these and she fluttered around the house in her leotard and tights (her 'insect-body', of course.) I used an old, worn linen table cloth to make hers, but you could experiment with different fabrics for different looks. (Arlo asked for black bat-wings.) You can make your own pair of wings by following the directions and downloading the pattern here.
Have a happy weekend- see you again on Monday...
