Halloween Bats made from Lutradur Black
We made our first batch of bats in 2015 and they have proved to be one of our most popular Halloween projects.
Lutradur Black was the ideal choice of material, not just because it’s the right colour, but also because it’s semi-transparent and lightweight, just like a real bat! Best of all, Lutradur does not fray or tear making it incredibly easy to cut and sew.
Each bat was made from two layers of Lutradur 70gsm Black, cut from a single A4 sheet, machine stitched along the top edge, with additional machine stitching to represent the bone structure of the wings.
We used a piece of Evolon for the body (as it feels similar to suede – a bit like fur) which we coloured black, before gluing in position. The white eyes were also cut from Evolon, with little pupils drawn on with the help of a black biro.
