Week 42 Compilation Board!
Week Forty Two in a snapshot 🙂
294 days down, 71 to go…
Day 291 – Autumn Fairy
Today’s fairy has been stitched together out of felt using running and blanket stitch. Her hair is cotton, tied at the ends and her hands, feet and head are little wooden balls.
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 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.
