Bat Garland: Tutorial

fabric scraps
fusible webbing (for added stiffness but not needed)
1. Cut out 2 bat pieces for each bat.

I have had my bats for a few years and don't remember where I got the template but Martha has one here. That looks like this:

2. Follow the instruction depending on the kind of fusible webbing you use. I use this kind.

So I cut my shape out and then iron it all together at the same time.

3. After webbing is ironed one sew 2 pieces together stitching as close to the outside as possible.

4. Next sew onto ribbon. My ears and wings were both sewn onto the ribbon so they wings wouldn't flop down when hung.

Let me know if you make anything from my tutorials. I would love to see them!
