  • Scissors
  • 3-4 old tie dyed T-shirts
  • Sewing machine
  • 1-yard ribbon, cut in half
  • Large white T-shirt

  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.
