So I was on Etsy and I saw the most adorable needlefelted mobile/hanging things and decided I wanted to try making one too.

This is what I came up with:

It's a needlefelted fairy riding a sewn felt dragon

The dragon is an enlarged version of this adorable dragon mobile pattern I bought. I'll link it later if anyone is interested. I use only Benziedesign wool felt for my projects.

The fairy was my design. I created a write frame and used a wooden bead for a head. The dress was hand needle felted as well as the little flower cap. This is my first time needle felting something like this. She's only about 2 inches big at most. The dragon is somewhere around 4 inches.

That's pretty much it! Thanks for looking and please let me know what you think.


I craft to preserve my sanity!

If you like my work and would be interested in a personal swap, please contact me!

Cute!  I especially like the dragon's little crossed back feet.   Smiley
