ELSIE

I would like to introduce Elsie, she is a fun loving (needle felted) fairy 'grandmother'. She understands the importance of looking good, has regular blue rinses in her hair and would NEVER, NEVER be seen flying about without her pink lipstick on. She also has a bit of a weakness for Elderflower wine, but makes sure that she only has one glass if she is flying home....

This is the first time I have added facial features to one of my creations and I have to say that I am hooked. There is something quite magical about watching the character come to life as you add a mouth, a nose, eyes and there was really no doubt in my mind that she was 'Elsie' when she was completed! It is also my first time making hands (which were a bit of a challenge) and also my first time needle felting a figure over pipe cleaners to give movement.
Elsie has already become part of the family and I keep finding her sitting on different shelves or ledges around the house, I think that she is keeping an eye on us.
Fairy wishes to you all............ X

I love it ! Very creative ! That's actually really cool Thanks.

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
