I thought and thought over this, considering things with wings--birds, butterflies, planes; how wings allow you to fly, etc. I thought about a dress/shirt with flutter sleeves. I thought about artwork for Emma's walls about flying or finding you way and soaring. I even considered a mini quilt featuring a bird of some sort.
But time constraints kept me from all of those fun projects. So, I settled on something fun and simple and perfect for the upcoming summer.
I grabbed an old shirt from my "refashion" pile and a jpeg drawing of angel wings and set to work.
Here's a link I found online with great directions for this, and I did use her wings graphic for my design but it's a really simple project.
I put the drawing under the back of the shirt and somewhat traced the design. It doesn't need to be perfect at all.
When they were all cut, I ran my hands over the holes to stretch out the remaining knit a little and make the holes open up some.
And there you go--I'm an angel from above...
This project is so simple and lends itself to so many interpretations--you could cut out a heart, star, word, etc. You could cut slits in the sleeves or down the sides.
There you have it--my time-crunched interrpretation of "WINGS." The girls have announced next month's theme already and it is "MARITIME." How fun for summer. Don't you want to play along too??
