Did you know that Mummykins and Me rebranded a few weeks ago?!
They are now Rebecca Page! (Aff link)
Same great patterns, new name, slightly new website – still just as awesome!
The felt wings pattern isn’t actually new. Its been around for a while, but we, on the Ambassador Team, were asked to help promote it for its re-release!
Oh and what is the Ambassador Team?
Well its this new group that has been started up that gets patterns in exchange for promotion!
A win, win for me since I love the Rebecca Page patterns to begin with!
So when I heard about the Felt Wings pattern (Aff link) I thought to myself….. “It’s Little Mister T’s birthday next week…. and he LOVES being a bird!” So after finding out from his mom that Blue Jays are his favorite…
Here are our Blue Jay inspired wings just in time for his birthday party!
This pattern is great to do as a project with a child, or a child in mind! It can be tailored so many ways with different shaped wings and different colors! (We stayed pretty traditional here.) How fun would it be to get the kids involved in picking the shapes, colors, sizes, and arrangement of the wings?!
Over all, the pattern delivers what it says!
I would highly suggest though doing the custom sized bands as the generic ones are quite small.
I also altered my bands and ended up making them out of strips of felt instead of cotton after not liking the way they had sewn up.
One last thing…
If you toddler hates wearing costumes, give it a year or two before making this for them! Little Mister A was beside himself as I was trying to get some modeled shots…
Here are the tearful bloopers!
