In mine i found a lost fairy... she told me her name was Lavender, that she was a good luck and health fairy and that she was trying to find her way to a lady called Hels... luckily for Lavender i just happened to know this Hels character and said i'd help her to get there, i made a special box for her to travel in via our very own royal mail.. think she was impressed with the royal part lol And i now know she is happily at her destination all safe and well in her new home.
Lavender was made totally from scratch using a pipe cleaner and some merino wool tops in white pink and purple, i moulded the shape of a body with the pipe cleaner and wrapped the tops around the frame, needle felting from time to time to bond the fibres, i then needle felted on some hair and boots, once the body was complete i made a little skirt and wings from a circle of mesh fabric, sowed this on and added some ribbon to create the leg stockings and the cross-over top. I finished her off by adding a segment of lace for the crown and i created a wand using wire, beads and a paper rose. I also added an attachment to the back so she can be worn as a brooch or necklace.
I got the idea from a fab book i brought on amazon by Julie Collings called "Pretty Little Felts" I've also been making some felt jewels from the same book which i will be blogging soon.
Thanks for stopping by, i know there hasn't been much going on here as i'm still loving making my cute cards, but i'm slowly learning to get the best of both worlds :O)
