Last month I held a little giveaway to say thank you for all the wonderful support and encouragement I have had in my wee doll making adventure over the past 2 years. I asked people to give me suggestions for their dream doll, Rebe and I picked out our top 10 favourite ideas and we pulled one out of a hat.Kate's suggestions was for a fairy doll for her daughter who very often 'is' a fairy. However, Kate noticed most fairy dolls wear tutu's or some other such inappropriate clothing, inappropriate because fairies mostly live outside and we don't live in the warmest, driest of climates. So Kate asked for a sensibly dressed fairy and here she is:
Her wings are made of hand-painted felt and have elastic loops. Kate and I felt it was a good idea that she didn't have to be a fairy all the time, so they are removable.
Thanks to you all for your continued support, encouragement and inspiration :-)
