Fantastic pattern and directions

I have very little sewing experience (including no quilting or applique experience prior to these wings) and was able to create the sprite wings thanks to the fantastic detailed directions that come with this pattern. The step by step photos were a great help, as were the blog posts that encouraged me to break this project into several shorter sewing sessions instead of trying to tackle the whole project at once.

So good!

I ended up using a heavier interfacing than specified (Pellon Peltex 71F), so I just used one layer of light fuseable on the quilted side— probably didn’t need to use anything, but my fabric was nubby silk so I though it would help it handle the quilting. The wings have a great shape! I think they’re one of the nicest things I’ve ever made. Such an elegant pattern. Mine were probably harder to turn than the specified interfacing would have been, but manageable.

Wings

I knew this was going to be a challenge as it was very different from anything I've sewn before, but the pattern is very thorough and walks you through everything. There is also a lot of extra help with blog posts, sewalongs etc so even if you've not done a lot of sewing before if you take it slowly and read through everything 3 times you'll get there and have a beautiful pair of wings. I really enjoyed everything about making these wings (except turning them! -next time I will use the right interfacing). A very detailed and supportive pattern which produces a beautiful end result.

Fun pattern!

I do a lot of garment sewing, so it was nice to do a different type of project. This pattern had some of the clearest explanations of any pattern I've ever used. It was nice that there were videos if I ever got stuck, but I didn't need them since the written instructions and photos were so helpful. It was also great that the PDF pattern was separated into layers by size—why don't more pattern companies do this? I used a walking foot for most of the sewing and jeans needles. Three needles broke over the course of sewing the wings, but I was using a cotton batting that was perhaps more dense than a synthetic batting, as well as material with plastic sequins that the needles had a hard time going through. However, the dragon wings came out looking very professional and my son and I were both happy with the results.

Rainbow colour wings

When you see the faces of these smiling children you know it was all worthwhile. Their so appreciative it makes you feel sooo good inside. We all should make a wing🥳

Imagination soars

This pattern is just amazing. It may be a bit tough if you are a confident beginner like myself, but when you are done....its just magic. I learned a lot about different sewing elements, fabric and myself during this creation. Get them. Make them, and watch your kid's imagination soar.
