Dragon wings

Easy to follow instructions. Durable once finished. Will try the Pixie wings next. Fun and stunning patterns.

Really special pattern

I really enjoyed making these wings! The instructions are wonderfully thorough, and the design is incredibly effective and appropriate for heavy duty play. There are lots of thoughtful details included in the pattern. Leave yourself plenty of time to enjoy each step of the process when you make these! I can’t recommend them enough- I’ve made three sets!

Dragon wings

An excellent pattern with easy to follow instructions. One very happy girl for book week. They turned out great.

Great pattern

Really easy to follow and makes beautiful wings. Thanks again Lisa, your patterns are amazing .

What a great gift to make!!!

These turned out great and the sweet little girl I gave them too loved them. I would suggest reading the pattern completely through before starting. It will make it a lot easier!


I was terrified to try these as I didn’t think I had enough sewing experience or that my machine would handle the project. Well I was wrong! The instructions and videos were easy to follow and I have now made 2 gorgeous pairs of wings that my littles love! Keen to try the woodland sprite wings now!

Fun Wings

Great pattern and easy to follow tutorial.

Dragon wings

Used this pattern to create two gorgeous sets of dragon wings for my small people. Pattern was deliciously straight forward, with clear and concise instructions, video tutorials and photos every step along the way.
