I’ve finished another limited edition of 25 fairies, just in time for the holidays. Iris has auburn braids and a purple petal skirt and wings.
Update: All of the Iris fairy dolls have sold.
I’ve found that I can usually find enough matching flower petals and wings to make a group (or swarm) of 25 fairies.
It’s a manageable number to make at one time and then I feel free to move on to other projects.
Instructions and patterns for making fairies like this are in my how-to book, Felt Wee Folk: Enchanting Projects.
Here are the petal petticoats, all stacked and ready to dress the fairies.
Now they’re waiting for their turn in the braiding salon.
