Some Tips to make it really green!
find something that you or your family no longer wear and use it in place of the felt - it can be any color, in fact, the crazier the better!
And for the elastic - those old leggins that you or mom no longer wear won't miss the elastic in the waistband!
Trace out the bat wings with a water based pencil - a dressmarking pencil or chalk work a charm. Let your kids lay down on the felt and trace/hand draw the batwings and cut them out.
Measure and cut the elastic accordingly to fit your kid’s arms wrapped around like a backpack. Glue both ends to the felt wings to about 5 inches below the edge of the center of the wings; (lower than pictured).
Measure your kid’s middle or ring finger and cut the elastic accordingly. Hot glue to the felt in the position where the finger reach out on the felt. For babies & toddlers, It’s better to attach the wings with elastic wrapped around their wrist instead of finger. (Pictured). Measure the baby’s wrist and cut the elastic accordingly, then hot glue the elastic to the felt wings in the position where the arms reach.
