Our eldest daughter got the role of crow in the ‘end-of-the-year’ school performance; and so mummy is supposed to supply the costume. Inspired by these wings, we started working on our own version.
We cut 30-some bands shaped as feathers and attached them to two triangular pieces of fabric.
To make the black bird wings a little more cheerful we added a single string of golden feathers!

Both wings were finished with biasband to make sure the wings survive the performance and maybe some dress up parties afterwards. We attached the wings to the backside of a black T-shirt; and finally added an elastic on both sides of the wings, so she can just put her hands through them to hold the wings in place.
