This fairy is needle felted around a wire form and embellished with a ribbon and butterfly wings. She was the last one to be made using this design. Knowing that I would give her to Z, I gave her darker skin. I figured if I couldn’t find Z a “Black dolly” I would make her one. I really like how the dark brown sets off the softer pinks, greens, and greys. This made it easy to color coordinate the embellishments:
I had all of these pieces sitting in separate boxes in various corners of my apartment for quite some time. I just wasn’t inspired to put them together until now!
Each piece is strung onto invisible thread and hung from two bamboo dowels covered in crochet. I love the finished project and so does Z! She and her mom especially like how the fairy slightly resembles their Mama.
I am currently finishing a blanket for my sister-in-law who is due any moment and will start work on a matching lamp and crocheted picture frames. Pictures to follow soon!
