I have so much to celebrate here at Mainsail Studio. Last week my Harley Dog Patterns joined the Vanessa Butterfly Wings as my second pattern release with Sprout Patterns. Today the Aaron Dragon Wings were released and I had my very first feature on Sew Mama Sew! To celebrate, together with Sprout Patterns, I will be selecting one lucky reader to create their own child-sized Vanessa or Aaron Wings. The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Sprout Patterns where they will be able to choose from the hundreds of thousands of surface patterns in the Spoonflower library to design their “dream wings.” The wings will be printed on a Sprout Patterns cut and sew fabric panel and shipped to the winner. After the winner makes their wings, Sprout Patterns will feature their creation on the Sprout Patterns blog and other social media outlets! Yes – that’s right! You not only get a fabulous pair of wings designed by you – you will also have a chance at stardom!
To participate, just comment on this post on or before June 17th. Write a few words telling me, if we give your imagination wings, what your dream wings would look like? Who would wear them? Are they dragon or a butterfly? Or maybe a pterodactyl, bat or fairy? Imagine the colors, patterns and texture…are you dark and scary or silly and cute – or none of the above?
If you don’t sew, that’s okay too, because I have something for one of my non-sewing readers! As part of your comment, mention that you’d be a “Rainbow Butterfly.” I’ll randomly choose one reader to receive a ready-made set of my classic rainbow butterfly wings – size medium (these will fit a child about 3-8 years old)
For a little design inspiration, here are some examples of my favorite wing and surface design combinations:
Vanessa Butterfly Wings
Aaron Dragon Wings
So tell me, what’s your wing?
