Fairy Wings

Step 1

Shape wire and cut to desired length, allowing extra for the bottom loop and any embellishment for the tip. Make loop using round nose pliers. Pin fabric with pleats in place and lay wire on fabric. Cut around wire leaving 1/8″ seam allowance. Glue both ends to wire by placing a small amount of glue on top of wire and folding over.

Step 2

Add additional glue at indicated points. Once glue points are secure, apply a glue line to the top of any exposed wire and fold remaining fabric over wire.

Step 3

Using thumb and forefinger, roll edges.

Second Wing Version

Follow basic Wing 1 instructions except in this version, both wings will be made at the same time. You may also need to cut a small slit into the fabric at the loop to allow the wings to shape properly.
