I love fantasy crafts. They are so carefree. You can't go wrong no matter what colors you choose. And as far as I am concerned, the fewer rules, the better.

This blond fairy was my first. She really didn't fit into my decor because while I love to make fairies, I don't decorate with them.

The buyer commissioned this red haired fairy and these are pictures I sent to her as I was working to get her approval on color, etc. Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures of the finished work. What WAS I thinking! But the last photo shows the background fabric I chose.

After the fairies, I moved onto this wizard. I had that "beard" all over me! The owl feathers were sort of messy, too.

Slowly coming back to reality, I found this picture of an African Tribal Queen and had to do her. She looked so powerful!

This elegant lady is my latest. I just love these old dresses, but the corsets! Well I am glad to say there has never been a bone in anything I have ever worn!

I still own these last three.  One thing about crafting... you have to have somewhere to put it all!

A-ma-zing! They really are... and if you don't mind me asking... how did you put them together, did you sew them or glue them or what... fairy dust? =P =D But awesome job, my favourites are the wizard and the elegant lady =)

There is little of both techniques there! I either hand sew or glue, depending on what seems like it will work best.  What is the most fun for me about these crafts is figuring out what to use for each part. The hair on all but the wizard for example, is from unravelled silky drapery cord that you get by the yard at the fabric store. The wizard's hair is unraveled yarn (the fuzzy kind). Then the clothes are different, too. The fairies were wispy and soft, the wizard and lady are stiffened and formed. I have made folio cases out of cardboard to protect the WIP and take it with me to fabric and second hand stores to find what I think will work for a particular spot. I get some pretty strange looks!

I've got a new project started and will be updating as I go on my blog. Wouldn't necessarily call it a tutorial, but I would love for anyone to stop by and give me hints and tips as I go!
