Dragon Wings Sewing Pattern PDF
This pattern teaches you the art of constructing a pair of wings for ages 3-15. It is a semi structured, flexible wing pattern – calling for no metal wires.
They can be made from woven and stretch fabrics giving scope for originality and experimentation. The spines feature not only gives structure but also allows you to experiment with contrasting colours and designs. The wings will stand freely on the back but they also have ‘natural’ movement rather than being stiff so will flap, sway and move about with your child.
They have been dubbed Dragon wings but they could just as easily be used as Bat, Dark Faery, or Imp wings. Give your child the gift of ‘real’ wings and let their imaginations soar like Dragons in the wind. Suitable for adventurous beginners
