I decided to use a pattern by the talented Karen Shifton (Damsel). It makes a 10 inch fairy that is very adaptable as there is a choice of arms and legs. Of course it is the finishing touches that makes this wee fairy unique.
I have named my fairies "Flutter FrouFrou Fairies" as they all have butterfly wings and enjoy acquiring "fancy stuff". I love the way each fairy took on its own personality and I had great fun coming up with a wee bit of stuff about each one! Without further ado here they are: I cannot pick a favourite but do you have one?

I hope you enjoyed my fairies. The wings are made by either painting front and back with butterfly wing or using the Inkjet printer and printing on fabric some butterfly wings. The wings are then cut out and a wire armature inserted (26 gauge) then the front and back are glued together. I added several coats of Mod Podge and then some glitter for the fairy shine.
Notice that they all carry a single piece of bling (a loose earring) and they all carry a flower and ribbon. Each has their own personality. I would highly recommend this fun pattern.
