Fairy Wings!


I had a chance to try Elle’s and River’s wings, (from this post), on this morning. I still need to do Danica’s. But today is about errands and chores and boring things like that. Her wings will be done after bedtime. Hopefully. If I’m not too burnt out from my day.

The wings are the Fairy Wings by Bobbin For Appliqués.

River’s wings are a layer of felt, two pieces of tear away stabilizer, and another piece of felt.

Elle’s are a layer of felt, a piece of craft foam, a piece of tear away stabilizer, and another piece of felt.

Elle’s obviously stand up better because of the foam’s sturdiness. I’ll make Danica’s the same way. Currently I don’t feel the need to remake River’s.

The stars for River’s and Elle’s both felt on the top and bottom side. I might do Danica’s in foam since her’s will be the 6×10 hoop size instead of the 5×7 hoop size. And I’m thinking they might need the sturdiness of the foam to hold the wings in place better. We’ll see.

Am I speaking Greek?

About manningthemachine

I'm Laura. Mama to four, and wife to one awesome guy. I'm ever so slightly sarcastic. Just a little bit. I like to quote movies, but since our house is managed by little people, most of those quotes come from kiddie shows. At least my husband generally gets the references. It makes me feel less awkward. I took sewing lessons starting at the age of 8, through the Kids Can Sew program. I took lessons for four or five years. Then I became a snotty teen and decided sewing was lame. I've repented of my ways, and enjoy sewing for my little ones. And sometimes other people. And almost never for myself. Oh hey. My blog name. "Manning The Machine." I think it's probably only funny if you know me in real life. And even then, maybe it is only funny to me. My last name is Manning. This is a blog about my sewing. Manning The (Sewing) Machine. Do you get it? Do you? No. That's fine. I think it's funny even if you don't.
