Fairy Sewing


When fairies sew they have to thread a delicate blade of grass through a tiny hole in the rose thorn needle.


Then they take wee stitches in a leaf or flower petal.




If you practice your fairy sewing diligently, when you grow up, you could sew fairy couture for the House of Ellwand.


This posting was made thanks to the wonderful imagination of my daughter, who has been doing this kind of thing since she was a little girl!

This is so cute...I feel that my not no precise skills would tear the leaf. It's so dainty, thanks for the post!

I borrowed that book from the library last week and have been drooling over the lovely images and wishing that I was a fairy or ... that the frocks could be made in my size.

We love to sew on leaves.
Will have to look for that book at the library or get it for a birthday coming up. Love fairy books around here.

My how to for dandelion and violet jelly....http://www.5orangepotatoes.com/blog/2009/05/08/how-to-make-violet-jelly-periodic-table/

Beth, both are DELICIOUS, especially the violet! I think due to the amount of sugar, sweetens everything up.

Worth trying, it's right up your alley! ;)

Oh fairy sewing is so sweet! I found some little gumnuts for the first time in our garden the other week and my little boy Ned and I set up his little knitted fairy folk for a little tea party. Those fairies would have loved to have done a little bit of crafting during tea!
