15mn pterodactyl wings (or any other flying animal)

What do you do when you have less than half an hour to make things with your oldest son (who is obsessed with dinosaurs)?
Wings to make him fly!

First grab some cardboard and draw the outline of each wing with your model lying flat on the ground. The base of the wing should be where the shoulder blade is. Cut it out, then use it to cut the second wing out.

Use some scrap fabric (I used an upcyced tee shirt) and cut two strips for where the hands are going to be holding onto the wing.

Then cut off two larger strips and sew where the shoulders are going to hold the wings.

Lastly, cut a strip of fabric that is about the width of the shoulders and sew it along the inside of each wing.

This is what the finished wings should look like. Ready for take off!
