Looking for fun, homemade costume ideas? These Taking Flight Fabric Bird Wings from Pattie Donham Wilkinson for I Love to Create are a sure bet. Colorful, beautiful...taking flight!

Materials:

  • Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Permanent Fabric Adhesive
  • Scissors
  • 3-4 old tie dyed T-shirts
  • Sewing machine
  • 1-yard ribbon, cut in half
  • Large white T-shirt
  • Straight pins
  • Thread


  Instructions:

  1. Cut large T-shirt using provided illustration as a pattern to create a wing base.
     
  2. For the rows of “feathers”, cut tie-dyed T-shirts into 4” wide strips, scalloping one edge.
