Pippy Flower Fairy

Here she is - my favourite flower fairy. She kind of reminds me of Pippy Long Stockings. I must however apologise for the quality of the photos. They didn't come out as sharp as I wanted. I hope you enjoy them anyway.

Many thanks as usual to you all for looking. Best wishes...Bernie

Hi Elle - I have two books that I referenced before making my fairies.

One is called 'Petal People you make yourself' ( KLUTZ).

The other one is 'Fairy Crafts' by Heidi Boyd (David & Charles). These are slightly bigger fairies but still beautiful nonetheless.

Both books outline how to make fairies using paper covered wire, silk flower petals, embroidery thread/floss for hair and wooden beads for heads.

If you wanted to have a go at making some, I would recommend the book by KLUTZ as it has a selection of 'ingredients' to get you started with excellent illustrations & instructions.

Once you make a few you'll be inspired to make more - using different yarns, fabrics & beads.

Best wishes...Bernie
