May I just say that I've come off the chain a wee bit and indulged some of my very pink stitchy fantasies with this one? I'd like to introduce The Spirit of Cinderella's Fairy God Mother. I went a little nuts...but I hope in a good way. She's so very Marie Antoinette mashed up with Mdm's. du Pompadour and Barry.
Wind in her feathers...
She's the first of my Famous Fairies in the Spirit size. I hope to do a Tinkerbell and Blue Fairy in the future for this catagory. I should do a Tooth Fairy also...Maybe a Tatiana? But most of all, I've got to do a line of Spirit Princesses so I can design a Cinderella to go with this one. Oh, my...
This model was stitched on 14 count White & Metallic Silver perforated paper with DMC floss & Color Infusions Memory Threads, Kreinik's #8 Fine Braids, 1/8" Metallic Ribbons & Micro Ice Chenille, size 11 seed beads, small craft feathers for her hair and assorted ribbons and trims for her skirt.
Her finished dimensions are approximately 6" x 20". The length can vary depending how long you cut the ribbons.
I got the feathers and ribbons from my local Hobby Lobby & Michael's stores, by the by. Pink is one of my favorite colors so I also had a LOT of ribbons already in my stash that I used...So, by all means, use what you already have on hand for a project like this.
As far as the other stitching materials I highly recommend The Cottage Needle as a source. If you don't see what you want in her listings just ask Rachelle and she'll help you out. I can also recommend 123stitch as a good source.
The Fairy God Mother is available now as a chart pack, which includes perforated paper, beads, beading needle, charts, keys & instructions. No Chart-Only just now.
Thank you SO MUCH for taking a peek.
Happy Spring Stitching...
