Step #17:

I tie my wings in hand on some dees; mostly the ones with married wings. Grab both wings with your index and thumb. Make a couple loose wraps with white thread, making sure to wrap behind the first wrap and to leave a long tag. Pull the thread tight, slowly, making sure to keep firm pressure on the wing between your fingers. 4-5 wraps will do. Do 2 half hitches and clip, leaving a long tag.
