some sugarplum fairies

I’ve had many ideas for birthday gifts for the chicklets, Sadie and Delia. But what do you make for the daughters of the craftiest mom of them all?! I dismissed so many ideas along the way that these presents are now far beyond belated-birthday and are falling in Christmas territory. I was finally spurred into action on this latest idea after being handed down some pastel rainbow dotted swiss and reading about S & D’s love of fancy and flashy fairies. I hope these are acceptably bedazzled!

On the fairy topic…while I was working on these gals last night I kept chuckling thinking of this too funny take on the flashiest of all fairies, the princess fairy.

    For some reason your whole archive came up on my Google Reader so I got a look at your work from way in the past. Your dollmaking just gets better and cuter all the time!

    About the princess fairy story you linked to… where do you *find* these things? Cracked me up. But anyway, I like the fairies you made, the hairdos are just the best.

    You always seem to have a new and exciting way of making hair on your dolls. Do you come up with them yourself or is there a good resorce for hair you could pass on? really fantastic dolls, as always.

    Oh my goodness! These are too freakin’ cute! I am so jealous of your talents. How I wish I could whip up such cuties for my girls. I have not been blessed by the crafting goddess, but have been given three daughters… However, I pathetically try.
    I love the wigs you create for your dolls. I hope you can give us a tutorial for the topsy-turvy wig and the fairy wigs (and patterns are always nice *wink*)
    S and D will adore them! Thank you for sharing.

    I think these are my all time favorites of all your softies thus far. Those cheeks! That hair! Those antennae! The fabrics!
    I’m awestruck.
    These officially put you at a tie for “craftiest mom of them all.”
