Week 34 Compilation Board!
Week Thirty-Four in a snapshot 🙂
238 days down, 127 to go…
Day 238 – Cross-Stitch Fairy
**Completed and updated 05/10/17**
I started today’s fairy this evening after work but I grossly underestimated how long this would take to complete!
Day 191 – Finger Puppet Fairy
I created today’s fairy using some scraps of felt and silver material that I had saved from past projects “just in case” I ever had an idea that could use them up – today is that day!
I used complimentary coloured thread to sew the details using back stitch, black seed beads for her eyes and I have sewn around the edges with a simple running stitch. I couldn’t resist using silver for her wings!
Day 162 – Pin Hole Fairy
I actually quite liked the effect of the pin holes silhouette so I thought I would try it on its own without adding stitches.
Day 142 – Red Stitched Fairy
Today’s fairy has been stitched into a plain piece of white card. I drew the outline on the reverse of the card and poked holes through the card at small intervals (to make it easier to sew). I then used some red thread on a very fine needle and deliberately criss-crossed the stiches of the body and hair. I chose to simply do a backstitch for the wings to add a bit more definition to them.
