cute little fairy wings
I made these wings for my godchild as her Xmas present cause she is really into this fairy world. I had little help , as you see my son has modeled them for you.
Anyway, the wings were very easy to make. I hope you understand this how to, cause it is my first one, ever.

    Now we need something to hold wings on a back. Elastic is the best thing for it. Measure it around arms for the length. Tie it in the middle and the ends sew together or again glue it, what works for you best.
