Wings for Miss Bluebird


journal entry:


Everyone wishes they had some.

Afton is turning five and her party is all about bluebirds.

I made these wings for her along with a little headband, crowned with a bright and very quiet bluebird.

I made a pattern out of card stock for the scallops and cut them with pinking shears. After I had sewn all of the scallop panels (feathers) to the backing, I felt the wings needed a lift. So, I gathered a few ruffles and added them under each layer of scallops.

Now these wings are ready to fly !
