This is a 36 page tutorial on how to design, cut, sew and dye moth wings just like the ones on my own moth dolls!
It includes detailed instructions and photographs on how to: ➤ Prepare and print a digital moth image for use ➤ Mark out, cut and sew the wings on a sewing machine ➤ Attach interfacing to make the wings stiffer ➤ Select which colours to use and how to layer them ➤ Blending techniques ➤ Instructions on how to match up both sides so they look symmetrical ➤ Tips and tricks on how to get smooth blends and accurate markings
You too could make your own stunning, soft and beautiful moth wings! I have been inundated with requests on how to make these and have been shy about sharing my secrets until now. I have perfected my technique and have plenty of tips and tricks to share and have collated them into this one PDF.
It's a specific walk-through to the first image, the Luna moth wings, but the principles can be used on any design! There is an inspiration sheet to give you more ideas, and a list of suppliers for materials and an idea how much materials will cost in two different countries.
Purchasing this tutorial also gives you access to prioritised advice via email! All messages using the secret subject heading will be responded to in depth, without being elusive or coy, and within 12-24 hours.
This is a beginner level tutorial, although you may need to know how to use a straight stitch on a sewing machine.
