Default peacock tutu

Does anyone have any tips for attaching peacock feathers to a tutu? I'd like them attached to the waistband somehow but I don't want them to break off when the tutu is worn. I was thinking of trimming the feathers and then backing them with some sort of stiff fabric (felt?) and then stitching them to the waistband...has anyone ever tried it?
Any input would be appreciated!

I'm faced with the same dilemma. I need to figure this out, too.

I fan the feathers out, then weave some embroidery thread in and out of the feathers to tie them together and still hold the shape of the fan. Glue the "fan" to a piece of felt backing. Then attached a lined clippie. I use alligator clips with teeth so it doesn't slip off when I clip it to the tulle.

Hope this helps.

Sure! Let me go find it, and I will take some pics of the feathers itself. I'll load them after picking up DD from school later. You can see the photo of the entire outfit on my siggy.

is it interfacing? is it iron-on? I wouldn't think you could iron feathers but maybe it can be glued

Grrrr!!! I can't find my peacock feathers!!! I just moved a month ago and still have not finished unpacking yet. I think it might be in the garage. I promise I will find it and post pics of it.
