Comfortable to wear for hours of fun play. The "WINGSofaBIRDIE" Costume Cape is designed with upcycling a men's dress shirt and fabric scraps! There is a safe & simple velcro-neck closure and easy-to-wear elastic arm bands. Each wing is decorated with pretty "FEATHER" ruffle layers. Sure to become a favorite dress-up for all! Can be created for either a boy or a girl, simply changing fabric choices. The "WINGSofaBIRDIE" Costume Cape can be made to fit babies to adult sizing. Perfect for anyone enjoying a medieval festival...or just trying to flutter around being a fairy.

I am a craftster-of-many trades. When I am not busy homeschooling my three peeps, I’m crafting it up in some form or fashion. First knitting project ever…exhaustingly, an Icelandic sweater. Ever painted a vehicle?…oh yes she did, a VW van. Make kid’s clothes out of curtains?…can‘t believe my son didn‘t dig those funky overalls. Made knitwear for my chickens….no, but I did strongly consider the cuteness factor. I love a challenge, you could say. I love to shop locally and breath new life into discarded items. I believe in second chances. Whoa! Am I writing an Craftsy profile or an online-dating profile? Better stop get the idea. I love to upcycle!!! I hope you enjoy all the folk-inspired goodies in my CHICKEN HILL shop and visit often!
