Stephanie from The Tiptoe Fairy shows how you can make a set of fairy wings for an American Girl or other 18″ doll. They’re made from two layers of fabric with heavy stabilizer between. You can make them from any fabrics that can take the heat of being fused with an iron. (For synthetics, use a lower iron setting and use a pressing cloth.) You can use ribbons (as shown here) or elastic for the straps. She includes a free pattern for making the wing shape. Go to The TipToe Fairy for the tutorial.
