If the material does not crumble heavily, then it is permissible not to cover it, but only to burn the edges with matches. But also wings can be made of satin fabric. For such wings, you need a fabric in two colors.

Fly cap

If there is a ready-made hat of black color, then it can be used as an addition to the costume of a cartoon hero. If there is none, then you can just sew it from old clothes. The eyes of the fly are sewn onto the cap. The eyes are cut out of the satin, and a seal is sewn underneath.

If you decide to make a headdress of a cartoon hero out of paper, then the child’s head can be decorated with a crown. To do this, cut a crown wide and make a back clasp, so that the decoration was easier to put on. The crown can be decorated with shiny palettes or dry shine.
