Okay, I started my Fairy Wings
Okay, It's 3 A.M. and I have my Fairy Wings. I had a genius thought, well genius for me. I sprayed my armature with spray adhesive, laid it down on the fabric and it stuck, (AWESOME!! worked great) then I trimmed the fabric and left a 1/4 inch allowance.Okay, Okay, I used a glue gun (cuz I don't like to hand sew If I can help it.) Anyway, I folded and twisted the fabric around the wire and it left a pretty nice finish. Then I tied the cording around the wings like the video said and wrapped some fabric around the middle. Tomorrow, (uhm, I mean later today) I'll add the harness and maybe I'll fancy it up with some hotfix rhinestones. Anyway, I think they look okay for my first set of wings. I did have a bad mistake, though, I put the fabric on one of the upper wings and I put it on backwards, TWICE!! UUUgggghhhh! I was so frustrated!!!
Well, I didn't like the way the finished edge looked on the underside of the wing, so I found some yarn and trimmed it out and I like it. I also added the ties for attaching it to your body. Still have to bling it up
thought. Keep you posted.
I think I'm done for now. I may add some ribbon, but the rhinestones really look great, the pic doesn't do them justice.
