Plush Fairy Party Favors!!








I just finished an order of 25 little fairies for a wonderful lady!! Actually it was for her 2 year old daughter. I have to say...it was so nice to be sewing little fairies for little girls...so sweet!!
I started by cutting all of the bodies out of a new felt I just purchased...it is a soft blush pink color, which I love. I don't like too bright of a pink for my dolls! It has to be just the right color!!
Next, I sewed all of the embroidery on the faces. They each have their own personality!!

The dresses are from a variety of pink and white patterned fabrics...a lot of roses!! Some polka dots.

I hand sew each doll together, stuff them and then add the hair which is also hand sewn on so it is secure.

Next are the soft ribbon wings. If I had had more time I would have added flowers and ribbons to the wings...Next time!!
Thank you all for looking!!

Snow at the Beach

















Wow, I have lived in Virginia Beach for over 15 years and I have never seen so much snow!! We had several snow days from school last week...and here it is Saturday and another storm. It reminds me of my days in Buffalo...but not as cold and only 4" instead of 20"...
So today I stayed in and finished my new little plush bear!
I am off to put a log on the fire and sew up my next design.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
