Kind of shabby recycled fairy wings



So this is the sewing that I did on the weekend. These are Ella's old fairy wings, they were a well loved hand me down to start with and she's worn them to death, so we though it was about time to make some new ones...




I cut them up and used bits of them to make some new ones. She loves them! Here's them in action. They're floppy, just the way she likes them (she doesn't need to take them off to get in the car or to put on a jumper).




Talking about wings, I made her some Christmas ones last year which turned out pretty good, I used some wire coat hangers, white yarn from my stash and red ribbon scraps for around the edge.

Gorgeous wings (and fairy!). I'm not letting my girl-child see these pics for fear she'll start demanding such things - cookies I can do, sewing stuff... ummmm, no. LOL

Thanks RDM. Hopefully she'll be happy with the cookies then!
