Butterflies, Bat and Dragon Wings

Some things are too adorable to not be shared!

With most of the world in a lockdown or social restricted state we are having to rely heavily on our imaginations to entertain ourselves. We love the Wife Made wing patterns which encourage creative and imaginative play in your children and put big smiles on their squishy little faces!

Each pattern comes in different sizes and the Butterflies even have a dolly size, so your little ones can twin with their favourite toys.

These patterns are suitable for Intermediate to Advanced stitchers, but we have been promised that the step-by-step detailed tutorial with full-colour illustrations are clear and easy to follow.

So the final question we have is which would you choose?
