Materials Needed (8 year old size)

3 Folds Crepe Paper color selected for body
1 Fold Crepe Paper color selected for breast
2 Pieces No. 15 Wire

1 Piece N0.3 Gummed Tape

The foundation for this costume is cut longer in the back than in the front and
shaped to represent the tail. Reinforce the edges with wire. Cover the entire foundation with rows of pointed "feathers," begin­ning at the bottom both front and back and working to the shoulders. Cut separate pieces for the wings, covering them also with "feathers." Gather the wings slightly at the top and sew to the sides of the foundation as seen on the "how to make slip-over costumes" page.

Sew ribbons on the sides to tie the wings together at the lower part of the arm. The head is made on a tight bonnet, covered with "feathers" to match the body of the costume. A beak of cardboard may be used or not as preferred.
