    this is the last step of wings. this is what I call a centerpiece for back of wings. I use only flowers before or tulle I use on this one. I have leftover flower and glue that on. the hole were burn in by accident because I like to singe the ends of my riddons so they don't thread. this wings were not going to have hole. I don't see holes in bats wings. now they gothic wings. I was going for bat wings. so be carful with lighters. it will make holes in sockings. but now you are done. put these babys on your kid and watch them smile with evy. and dance around like little fairys

Thank you thank you!!! I made the fairy wings from Threadbanger years ago and after lots of moving around and putting them in storage, they just got fixed too many times and just fell apart beyond repair. I had no desire to make new ones after that till i saw the bat wings!!! yay I cant wait!
