Project Downloads
  1. Cut two pieces of felt to cover chest in the shape of a shield with a curved neck (similar to the pattern for the feather).
  2. Cut one strip of felt in the same color to measure 1 ˝ inches wide by 50 inches long.
  3. Cut feathers for body. We used the following: light blue feathers= 10, turquoise blue feathers= 10 ,royal blue feathers=6 , lavender feathers= 7 , purple feathers= 6
  4. Either sew them or use Fabric Tac™ to glue them to the front of the body piece.
  5. Tuck in assorted colored feathers and Fabric Tac™ in place.
  6. Add long strip and sew the center section to the middle front of the body piece. Roll the felt and completely sew from one end to the other to create a tie for the neck.
  7. Cut 24 strips of tulle to measure 6 inches wide by 30 inches long.
  8. Fold each strip in half and lay them one at a time over the front of each tie, next to the body piece. Carefully wrap the two loose ends of the tulle backwards and around the felt tie and through the loop on the top. Pull the ends down to tighten. (allow 12 strips on each side).
  9. Make sure to slide the tulle strips close to each other as you tie. This will leave 12 inches of the felt tie for securing the costume on the body.
  10. Randomly glue feathers here and there on the tulle using Fabric Tac™.
