How do you make dolls
The rules are simple: create a Fairy name and description using this online Fairy Name Generator, then make a fairy to match. You can use any pattern you like, and combine knit, crochet, felting and sewing techniques. The fairy needs to be completed in order to join a Fairy Meet-up on Halloween.
I am using the Grace Notes pattern, and my Fairy is described as follows:
She brings hallucinations. She lives where fireflies mate and breed. She can only be seen in the light of a full moon. She wears dresses that glow with fiery colours and has russet-coloured wings like a brightly coloured butterfly.
As she has taken shape in my mind, she has pale ivory skin with hair the color of midnight. Nightshade tatoos are embroidered on her body, and her eyes are the color of embers.
I wanted realistic looking butterfly wings for her, so I modified a couple of my crochet butterfly patterns: the Swallowtail and the Milkweed butterflies, then decided to add to this a pattern for Luna Moth wings as well.
She still needs hair, and her fairy finery. Coming soon :-)
