Something new : Felt Faeries

Hello.......... Today as part of my 'Something new' series I thought I'd introduce you to my first ever felt faerie.

I just couldn't resist this book and lovely merino yarn a few months ago on amazon. I've never tried any felting before but I just knew I needed some Magic Wool Fairies in my life.

So while looking for some suitable wooden beads online I was just skippy happy to discover these wooden heads, yes you know the crafting's gone too far when the postie delivered a bag of heads and you're like yippee, that's my bank holiday sorted.

This little lady, is the first easy make in the book, so with beads, wool, glue and a pipe cleaner in no time at all I had my first faerie,

Isn't she sweet I couldn't resist adding a mulberry flower to her hair, I know she's not in the Summerhouse's usual colour palette but as she was my first attempt I opted for a colour I didn't mind messing up, I've got a lot to learn but I'm fairly pleased with how she turned out.

I'm even warming to the colour red a little !!!


One wispy wool faerie.

Happy Crafting

  1. Lovely fairie. I do find the bag of heads a bit scary though haha! x

  2. She's beautiful! I've never done any felting before either but this makes me want to. The bag of heads made me laugh out loud.

  3. What a great project, I have never done any felting before either but this makes me want to as well. Take care.

  4. That came out so nice, Clare. I can see a fun new hobby on the horizon for you. :)

  5. I love her Claire, how fun to make little faeries.
    Have fun,

  6. Your versatility never fails to amaze me! She is just darling.

  7. I have yet to try felting and your "bag of heads" comment caused me to laugh out loud, too! xx
