I made this as part of my Geek Chic swap for oddacity. It is a fairy in a bottle from the Super Nintendo game, Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I was worried that she would be too big for the bottle, but she came out just small enough to fit. It was kind of hard working from a 16bit screenshot, so I took a little liberty with her.

I used this pattern that I bought on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25100988

I changed it a little so that it went along with my ami style, embroidery floss for hair and beads for eyes. The bottle I found at a thrift store after scouring the city for a corked bottle and coming up with nothing. The tag says, "In case of emergency," because in the game, the fairy is used for health and if you should die, the fairy will automatically bring you back to life.

And this is the picture that I worked from:

On a side note, I originally planned to make a fairy in a bottle from the more recent Zelda games (Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess). I have this type of fairy tattooed to my ankle, but it didn't work out. I couldn't figure out how to get a glowy effect.

I think to crochet a doll is a talent above talent. I love this fairy and the jar was a great find.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

From the title of this topic I expected a glowy-ball fairy, but I'm so happy you made a Link to the Past fairy! I recognized it right away, it is soooo cute! Wonderful job!!  Smiley

(In case of emergencies, yes, but the fairies in LttP only give you like... 6 hearts back...  Undecided)

please excuse her for the day, its just the way the medication makes her...

This is so cool.  And useful during many of life's emergencies!

I know this is an old link but the pattern for the PDF - Little Fairy crochet is sold, are there any other fairies that would work for this?  My son's gf loves Zelda.  And, I'd love to make her one of these for Christmas.

Thanks for any info, ya'll are the best!

Update for anyone else who is new to all of this and didn't know, the etsy store for that seller has more of the fairy patterns /blush
