Whimsical little Fairies


After twisting pipe cleaners, wrapping embroidery floss and sewing miniature, felt clothing, these little whimsical wee little fairies were created. Their felt jackets have beads, tiny buttons and a lot of embroidery. Silk flower petals were used to make their skirts. Their faces were painted onto wooden beads using the smallest brushes.

These magical creatures were inspired by Salley Mavor, an amazing fabric relief artist. (Her craft book called, "Felt Wee Folk" teaches you how to make these...just in case you want to make your own.)  I added my personal touch...white feathers... just below their fairy wings because a fairy needs feathers to fly, right?  I like the softness the feathers added to my little fairies.
