Shirley from Madison, Mississippi sent me these pictures of her wee folk tableau. She said, “At the urging of one of my daughters I’m sending you some photos from our Thanksgiving table decoration. Thanks for the inspiration to make such fun little people.”
I like they way she captured the spirit of Thanksgiving by giving this woman a rolling-pin. The dolls look comfortable in their natural environment, surrounded by moss, flowers and branches. Great job, Shirley, and thank you for sharing a part of your Thanksgiving celebration!
She learned how to make these dolls from my how-to book, Felt Wee Folk: Enchanting Projects. It’s rewarding to see how people use the patterns and directions from the book as a spring board to creating their own characters and scenes.
I love this!
It does capture the Spirit of Thanksgiving! Now what will she do for Christmas?
I’m glad your daughter urged you to send in the photos…..it’s fun to see other peoples interpretations. It makes me want to start working on my own dolls again.
What fun to see what she has done with your great book! This is enchanting!
Very sweet…nice job on the fairies. What an adorable centerpiece…I am sure everyone loved it!
Great job Shirley! I am sure the diners enjoyed this tableau immensely!
encantada com tanto talento
