A very good friend of mine celebrated her birthday on Sunday and I wanted to make her something really special. Via a rather circuitous inspiration process, I came up with the idea for a fairy doll based on her personality and appearance. Meet Flelph:


She is 18" tall and made from felt. I developed the pattern and costume myself and had a fabulous time playing with beads and trim and wire, oh my! I constructed a support stand for the doll - can't let those pretty little legs get all bent and misshapen! - as well as a velvet-lined display box.

As is usually the case, I got totally carried away and before I knew it there was a tiara (for my friend to wear) and a fairytake storybook to go along with the doll, both also in their own display box.

It took me a month of solid work in every spare moment I had and I absolutely enjoyed every single second of it. Birthdays are my favourite excuse to craft Grin

(There are a lot more pictures hosted at my crafting journal for anyone who is interested.)

OMG!  She is beautiful!  I don't think I could imagine a more perfect fairy doll.  Her face, her clothes, her hair and little antennae.  She even has fingers and a ring!  Wow!  I am very impressed.  You have a very lucky friend indeed.  Wow!

I am in awe that she was entirely handmade.  The details are fabulous and she is absolutely beautiful.

thats absolutely gorgeous. you could definately sell those for bundles of money.

all we were searching for was someone or something to believe in. i guess that's why we got each other.

WOW.....you have true talent!!!!  I went to your crafty journal and read the stipulations in order to view the pattern, but it still would not allow me to???
Keep up the good work - it is awesome!
