Just thought i'd see what you all think of my latest trial.  Huh

I wanted to make a felt fairy, but apart from having no wings (cant find any I'm happy with) she has turned out kinda butch looking.

She is still part of the family but doesnt have a suitable name yet so any suggestions for a pink butch fairy would be greatly appreciated. Grin





Dont know what it is but I just love needle felting people.  Cheesy

I think this is really fantastic...no need to excuse her 'butchness', she's just a fairy that happens to reflect the new body silhouettes of women in North America!

I've browsed the work of women in my city's Fibre Arts guild, and your work bears a lot of resemblance to other female artists exploring sensuous felt body shapes, with big generous breasts, tummies and hips. Way to go...and I adore all the fine details, congratulations!

Holy crap! That's amazing! I still don't see how people can get things like this from wool. The face is so detailed. You're very talented! Smiley

I like her. She's a little butch, but she's just a really tough fairy. Smiley

She is lovely  Smiley

I feel nervous is suggesting a name for her - I don't want to accidentally say a name that belongs to someone here on the board and offend them!

She really is wonderful, and well accessorized.  I think what you may be unhappy with is how wide her cheeks and jaw are.  You could try to slim them down, but I've learned that whenever you try to go back and fix something it usually ends badly. 

She kind of reminds me of Cher...

I agree it was only the face that made me thing she was slightly butch. ( I still think her face is adorable.) I like her round body. It wasn't the body at all that made agree with the butch statement. I think it was mostly her chin. Smiley
