Fairy Tales In Tatted Lace

This fairy was created with a tassel.  A lovely lady on FB, Melanie V. thought of using the tassels.
I like creating wings for the fairies.
I call her "Wheat Fairy" 


Although most of the wings are covered by hair here is the back side!

This fairy ( 'Bright Blossoms") is a bit loud in color.  But I used her for a step by step to give you an idea of how to make.

A great thing to use is a credit card to make a tassel (less expensive) 
wrap around and bend card to remove so you can tie it up.

She has a crown made of bead cover

She was an experiment fairy with a bead that has a face. 
The arms go in next and can be made with pipe cleaner, wire or thread braided. "Sky is the limit."

Here is the back of the wings, made without beads.
Sticking hair on is the hardest part.
I have sew dolls in the pasts and the next time I will try faux fur or wool and see how that turns out!
I am working on a pdf and have it made but not sure how to place it on the blog for now if you can't wait, here is a picture!


I know it is sideways
Have a great week and tat away!
