Custom Birthday Party Sets

Austin is LOVELY in the spring! A wonderful time and place to open the doors and windows blending the hum of the sewing machine with the chirps and whirs and whooshes of nature. Etsy has been keeping me pleasantly busy, and I’ve had some awesome birthday orders!

First up, the birthday bunny set!

To accompany the lovely bunny crowns I have made bunny tail birthday hats. Taking some pointers from milliners I stiffened the felt slightly so the hats hold their shape, I’ve topped each birthday hats with a colorful cotton tail!

This set has been a hot seller, shipping all the way to Sunset Blvd! So fancy! 🙂 It can take quite a bit of time to produce, as I stiffen the felt of the party hats they have to set, so I need at least two week advance orders. I use completely non-toxic kid friendly methods of stiffening, btw! No mad hatters here!

Felt Butterfly Wings

Well, this idea of mine to make butterfly wings out of felt is proving to be quite a project. The appliques are time intensive, the switching of thread colors time consuming, the process of trial and error exasperating. But I am liking the results!

They need more structure. I used fusible fleece thinking that would give them enough support, but its not stiff enough.

So I’m going to get some heavy weight fusible webbing and make another set. I’m also going to do something with the arm elastics. I’m thinking some kind of band, instead, that would also help support the wing.

They’re gorgeous, just a little floppy! I’m trying to avoid having to make a wire frame. I’ll also make a headband with antennae. You’d think a little boy wouldn’t be interested in being a butterfly, but my son couldn’t wait to try these on and is looking forward to his own pair!
