Round and Round Fairies Go!!!

 Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post.
Much appreciated and enjoyable too!!

The answer to the Which Was Which question was:
The top one with the pink backing card is:
Using the image from  a Lili Of The Valley little book.

The bottom one, was using my stamp on Watercolour card
 and I coloured it with watercolour paints.

Sorry!! Lots of pictures!!
So this project is using my Needle Felting and my imagination!!
It's for a little girls bedroom, as a mobile of Fairies.
Rather difficult to photo the whole thing, as it is quite big.
Each Fairy measures 7 1/2 inches or 19cm from top
to bottom and the wings are 5 inches, 13cm wide.

They are attached to the wooden ring using jewellery wire.

They all have different hair styles!
I have to use my hairdressing experience of 58 years, 
to make sure they don't all look the same!!
Great fun!! 

The little flowers are made from clay.
The butterfly on her hand is a card, die cut one.
They all have a butterfly and clay flowers
 to match their colour.

This Fairy has a single plait. 
The hair is just made with the same wool, 
as even the animals are!!
Their wings are made from the wool too.
The back of the yellow one is behind the blue ones head!!

This one has a bun at the back of her head!!
OOps!! Forgot to photo it!!!
I made the ringlets with the wool and a cocktail stick.

I had to pretty the top up and also the wooden ring.

To cover up where the wire attachment is, I made a
butterfly with the same wool and colour of their dresses.
I then used my glue gun to attach them to the ring.
They can be seen a bit on the first picture.

I also wanted to pretty up the hanging cord.
So I added a few flowers to the cord. 
The bows are to cover up the join.

Are you still with me?!!

Well that is it for today.
Back to my desk.
I have so far, made 130 assorted cards.
I still have another 12 and still have to finish
making the Easter Cards.
I will be taking them, if I get them finished,
to one of the Care Homes I supply, next week.
The money goes to their Charity, other than a few 
pennies for my costs.

Hope you all had a lovely  Mother's Day today.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a lovely 
message so I know you have been.
I will visit your  blogs as often as I can.

Stay safe.
Big hugs,

You have certainly got to grips with felting!! This is incredible and I love that their hair is all different too. The pretty blue one is very like Elsa from Frozen xx

Sorry for the late comment Carol. Your mobile is fabulous, so pretty and to make all the fairies different is lovely. The little clay flowers look so delicate! I'm sure I'd end up breaking them if I attempted anything like that :) x
