I am making a Tinkerbell costume for one of my 13 yr old girls on my social work caseload. Don't ask how I got roped into this. What started as a suggestion ended up as an afterwork hours shopping trip. Dang, must learn to keep mouth shut.
But, now I'm getting into the task. I bought the lime green panne velvet, the pattern and have wings already. What tension should I use for the fabric on my sewing machine? I do have a ball point needle (lady at store helped with that). Should I zigzag around all the exposed ends? My friend says it won't fray but I want a more finished look.
Next, did Tinkerbell have a wand?
