My little fairy

You’ve seen my dolls before right?

I have had this vision in my head for sometime about a particular doll I was wanting to create. Seriously, it was keeping me awake at night.

I wanted a fairy doll. Deliciously soft made with cotton and bamboo, in my signature colour scheme of pink and whits (of course), with beautiful lacy wings on her back.

The doll I could do – it was the wings that were keeping me up nights – how would I make them, I wanted them slightly stiffened – how was I to do that. I made one prototype which were a disaster – went away for a few days and came back to it with fresh eyes and came up with these…

P8270432 Sooo – I was happy with the overall look of them (the colours are really not working for me tonight in any of the posts) now I had to work out how to stiffen them. Lightbulb!

I gathered my ingredients…

P8270440 …and got cooking…

P8270433 …dipped…

P8270437 …blocked and crossed…

P8270439 Waited a few hours drying time and then attached.

P8280447

P8280446

But, I thought she was missing something…Lightbulb (yep twice in two days – a record!)

What does every fairy need?

P8290448 Why a wand of course…

P8290451 Ahhh – maybe now I will get some sleep!
