This week was pretty busy! It was al about fairies!
As my older niece’s birthday is coming up this month was n a hurry to start with and finish fairy house I told her the fairies started to build in my garden 😀
Photo that gave me idea to make such house one day popped out on Pinterest. Fell in love with the houses this young woman is making/creating. Here is the link to her beautifully fairy house.
You should go and see how wonderful work she is doing!
Here is the house I have been working on. Construction of the house is made in paper clay. Have the roof done, and walls are painted so far. Now have small work in polymer clay to do. Windows, doors decorations such as flowers… I am planning on making the house door movable, so my nice can open and sneak peak inside to look for the fairies; will try to make few pieces of furniture to decorate inside as well.
This will keep me busy for the next few days, maybe whole next week, depending how well my fingers will listen my creative mind 😀 Will make sure to take the photo of the house when completely finished. Here are the photos of what I have done so far.
Still lots of work to do….
Speaking of fairies… making this little house, and me loving fairies and fantasy, I tried to make a little fairy doll.
The biggest problem was finding suitable wings to fit the fairy. Not to small, not to big, not to difficult, not to simple….ahhh….. what problems …..
I am still not sure my choice is the best one made but this pattern was easy to make, wings are firm and steady…. and I still have time finding new ones and trying them out 😀
Today I am not going to talk about the pattern. Didn’t have time to write it all down for you to try to make the fairy doll. It is the hair that need lots of explaining(s).
Aha…before I continue talking, let me show you few photographs of this Fairy Doll I have made.
Doll is same size as BB Dolls. Changed the head shape and made arms little bit longer. Dress is different (this one is cut in waist – but again easy to make).
Hair is not so difficult to make even though it looks pretty complicated wrapped here and there.
It can’t bee seen on the photos well, but hair is done in two pieces. Back with pony tail, and front with bangs and side hairs to fill al the gaps around ears.
Aha, this doll has the ears! 😀 Elvish ones!!!
I hope the pattern will be finished by the end of next week. Will try to make it. Still wish to work some more on this Fairy Doll. Wish to change shape of the shoes, have to unblock my mind so can finally remember how to make left/right ear instead of making both right 😀 … Have few more hair styles I would like to try making …
Did try making tiny fairy as well. You can see her on photo below. Size smaller than little Karla doll. Here she is compared to finished fairy. The head in front of the dolls is new airy I am working on.
Hope you enjoyed these little fairies and their stories!
I didn’t want to finish this week without at least one pattern to keep you busy over the weekend 😀
As a mater of fact I have prepared two patterns for you that am sure you will enjoy very much.
Both are fast and easy to make. Outcome is amazing! You will have lots of fun making them and I am sure will find someone to make a nice gift to!
First one comes from dear blogger friend Sharon and her Gentlestitches.com. She has created this little Koala that I have made and love it.
I have added the branch and made Koala as a keychain. My Koala ended up about 6-7 cm high what made him just perfect for a keychain. Is really so adorable. I didn’t have safety nose to put it on, so I sewed, embroidered one instead. So did with the eyes. Photo is not the best one (but again, when did you see any of my photographs turning out perfect 😉 ).
Link to the pattern and free download to this pattern is here:
The second pattern I warmly recommend is one quite unusual but again so outstanding and gorgeous one. I fell in one with this one at first sight. Did not have peace until I tried it out! The second pattern is made by Jennifer at Squirrel Picnic. Her pattern is Cuddly Robot or MEAP 🙂
This is my MEAP made following the Jennifer’s pattern!
She has got this great, great idea on making the wheels! You should try it!

Really hope you will enjoy making both of these wonderful toys and have lots and lots of fun! 😀
Wishing you all wonderful and peaceful weekend.
Love and hugs to all,
