greetings all! i know this may seem out of season, but today i'd like to share a piece i created for my mother in law for christmas this past year. meet the frost fae!

i'd been sort of dreaming about a wintry, frosty faerie for a while and thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to create her. i started first with her hair. it's a blend of 4 yarns, with a sprinkling of iridescent embroidery floss and ribbon

next up i made the coat... you see, i wanted a faerie in a parka, but then i thought with all of the hair and the bulk of the coat the addition of wings would be too much so i compromised.

the main part of the coat is a sweatshirt fleece with the fuzzy inside turned out and trimmed in faux fur. the wings are felt (made 100% from recycled plastic bottles!) and they are stitched with metallic/iridescent embroidery floss that is very difficult to photograph... it's much more sparkly in real life!

some stitching on the front

her big fluffy boots of recycled felt and faux fur

a detail of her hat and the bead i used to top it

a closeup of her button and pearl necklace:

and a whole body shot, showing off her necklace and belt and shorts

and a more modest shot.... i was originally going to have the coat fastened closed, but it turns out that she couldn't sit that way so she's an immodest little elemental Wink

thank you so much for looking!  as always comments, criticisms and questions are welcome Cheesy

So cute.  I love her outfit. Did she end up on top of the Christmas tree?
