Absolutely lovely

This pattern is so well thought out - excellent instructions and construction aids, great suggestions for upcycling, and really creates a lovely finished project. I’m really happy with how mine turned out, and am looking forward to making more!

Adult wings - a challenging but fun make

I’ve made three pairs of child-sized wings but this was my first attempt at the Angel wings - and in the youth/adult size.

Choosing the right fabrics from my scraps took a while but is just the kind of task I love to do.

I made a silly mistake in cutting out and removed the wing tips from the outer fabric… so a little bodge was necessary. The instructions are clear though. I wasn’t concentrating!

The trickiest thing was manipulating the stiffened wings through the machine to appliqué the decorative feathers. On the second pair I decided to sew down one side of the feather and then backstitch to finish and sew the other side in the same direction - this made it a bit easier.

I love the finished wings! They’ll be perfect for an event at our local folk festival looking for the sacred in the ordinary😇

Fun!

This was so fun to make! I am used to quilts, its like a mini quilt, much quicker. All the interfacing is not available here in the Netherlands so I had to make do with similar. Its no big deal, just use what you have on hand

The perfect gift

I made these wings for my daughter. They turned out so beautifully. The most detailed instructions with a video tutorial to go with it for us visual learners. Will definitely make more!

Great pattern!

These came out so great and my two year old is very excited about them! It is pretty labour intensive, but I didn’t find it particularly tricky, and the directions are very clear and helpful.

Such a fun pattern!

I loved creating these wings. It was my first time quilting and appliquéing but the pattern and instructions were easy to follow and use. They look beautiful on and the colour options are endless!

Easy to make, fun to wear! I added a unicorn horn, and my granddaughter calls herself an allicorn! Loved making these. Now onto moth wings.
