Intro: Big T-shirt to Little Angel
Turn a boring white t-shirt into a great angel costume for kids!
1 big white t-shirt
2 m of lace
1/2 m of ribbon
2 sheets of cardboard (A4)
Step 1: The Wings
Sew lace on the edge of the sleeves, going further down on the t-shirt on both sides (front and back).
Bend the cardboard diagonally and cut the extra piece so that you get a double triangle.
Insert the cardboard into the sleeve and sew it using the sewing machine so that it doesn't move.
Step 2: The New Sleeves
Mark with pins two lines parallel to the old sleeves.
Cut with scissors and make a simple hem, or use lace to do it.
Also sew lace around the collar of the shirt.
Step 3: The Back
Attach two ribbons on both sides of the back, where the new sleeves are.
Tie them together so that the wings lift up.
Step 4: The End
Dress up a kid, his hands going through the holes and put an aureole over his head.
Guaranteed effect ;)
