Wings!

I'm so excited!

I finally learned how to make wings!



Proper fairy wings,
and just in time for Christmas, too.



So now I'm making fairy dolls,
because fairies are for Christmas!
(At least, they are if you're British.)

Here's a close-up of the wings.

by more fairy friends.

    1. Thank you so much, Shashi! That's really lovely of you. I will be over to your blog and I'll have another look at your wing tutorial! These wings I've made are ok for small cloth dolls, but I still need to find a way to make big, translucent wings, too.
