Design your own Butterfly Wings Review July 15, 2015 15:47

I love this Design your own Butterfly Wings kit from Seedling. It has been very popular. I know these kits are for children but I couldn't resist having a go myself! Here's my review...

The kit includes: fabric butterfly wings, fabric markers, glitter glue and instructions. Once decorated, the butterfly wings can be worn over the shoulders and there are loops at the end of each wing for fingers/thumbs to hook through.

As you can tell from the photos below, I thoroughly enjoyed colouring the wings in. My one tip is to hold back on the glitter glue - use it sparingly because when dried, it will stiffen the fabric (I obviously like my glitter a little bit too much!). Adds to the realism I guess, butterfly wings are not supposed to be soft, are they?

I was asked once whether the fabric pens supplied were enough to cover the wings and I can now say YES! Although, admittedly, I had chosen the blue to cover quite a few large areas and the ink was getting paler towards the end. Voila!
