Tiny Flower Fairy


Finally done now – this little one is 1 3/8th inch high, carved from Holly wood, and painted with alkyd oil paints. Her dress is crocheted from sewing thread.


I had some fun making her little flower garland headdress and wings. The flowers on the headdress got sewn to the basic green cap and before I clipped off the extra thread, it occurred to me that it actually looked better to leave the long tails as is. Seemed more etherial that way…


And the wings are a simple application of ultra suede wrapped around the chest like a bra under the dress bib. Worked well!


So now she is ready to fly off to her new home – I hope she brings sweet dusties to all her new friends there!
