Small fairy

This fairy is rather small. Smaller things are harder to finish I find. As always, I get interrupted so couldn’t finish her as quickley as I had hoped. Have to start another one soon. Its all happening suddenly and as usual time is running away and Christmas is almost on top of us. I hope I can get it all done by next week. Well at least finish up one of them.
This lady turned out larger than I thought she would. I used a strech fabric so her legs became rather slim and long . She is about 30cm big. I have to embellish her now. I will make another one with cotton and see how big she turns out. I think her face will be a challenge to make as it will be pretty small.  If it does turn out good then I will make it into a pattern.

Santa coat is finished

Santa’s coat is done and now onto the doll. I added the trim which doesn’t seem to photograph too well but I think it did the trick of disguising the small difference of height and it looks looks nice as well.

Coat almost done

I have been trying to finish my Santa for the past 2 years. Finally the overcoat is almost done after much wrestling with the fabric.😄 Gosh that velvet is not easy to work with. The coat came out ok except that the back piece has become a wee bit longer. Have to put my thinking cap and see how to disguise it. I could easily use some white furry trim  to cover it but I really don’t want to use white that is my problem. I would like to use brown furry fabric or trim but I don’t have that and I really don’t want to buy anything but use what I have in my stash. If nothing works then I look forward to shopping 😀😀
