This is the fairy I made about 5 years ago for the top of my boyfriends Christmas tree. 



I wasn't living with him at the time so she was a mini version of me (she's called Boyce Junior) to keep an eye on him.  I'm not a big fan of making dolls or fiddly things and she took about 5 hours but he loved her.  She still goes on our tree now (I live with him now) and she doesn't even get packed away throughout the year...she lives on our DVD shelf in the living room...so that's why she's only kind of a Christmas fairy.   Smiley

That's a really sweet story. She is very pretty. How did you do her hair?

Oh that was a bit of a nightmare...I had no clue how to do hair but I'm pretty sure I just stitched embroidery thread in and out of the head.  That's why it stood on end!   Smiley
