Cloth Doll Artistry Fairy Doll Challenge Entry.....

Well the challenge due date is over so I can show you what I made with the Faylinn Fairy pattern that all of the entrants used.

If you want to make the doll yourself you can find the free pattern at Clothmatters here....It's a tiny shelf sitter fairy about 12 inches in length.

My son took a couple of pictures for me but then he said that my pictures weren't bad....



She has big hair.....:)


I found making the face the hardest part because it was a very small area to work in. My fine motor skills aren't what they used to be...LOL

I used freezer paper for the pattern which I then ironed on to my fabric. It gave me more control and accuracy for the small body pieces and now I'm a convert. I will be using freezer paper again.

Her dress is made from the petals of a silk flower and some recycled gift ribbon. I had some hot pink scrapbook trim which I used as an embellishment. Her wings are flower leaves. Her hair is fake fur. I bought a remnant of it for 25 cents about 30 odd years ago and now I have finally used a bit.
I'm pretty pleased with how she turned out as I'm fairly new to doll making and this is the smallest doll I have ever made.

Take care.

If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
