Woven Bead Fairy

Day 216 – Woven Bead Fairy

Bead weaving and bead knitting are favourite techniques of mine to use. I came across bead knitting a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I then started experimenting with bead weaving as well as creating my own designs.

I decided to weave the gold and white seed beads onto some silver card using some clear fishing wire.

Finger Puppet Fairy

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!

Seed Bead Fairy

Day 186 – Seed Bead Fairy

I had a slight disaster today with my bead box… I was organising my craft supplies when the box slipped and all the beads mixed together!

I was halfway through re-organising them back into their places again when I was struck with inspiration for today’s fairy.

Beaded Silhouette Fairy

Day 127 – Beaded Silhouette Fairy

I cut out two matching fairy shapes out of white felt and stitched them together with white thread using blanket stitch. I added a green seed bead in each stitch to outline the silhouette with Beaded Blanket Stitch.
