Wanna see my thimbles?

It's done! The springtime fairy...for spring and stuff...

And what's better is that I figured out how to use this super duper photoshop software!

So what we have here is a slip style dress sewn in yellow, blue and lavender layers. There is a layer of blue and lavender net at the bust and one sleeve. It's trimmed with blue and green eyelash yarn, yellow silk flowers and yellow half size pony beads.

The wings are curtain rod style, two layers, made from white tricot. It's dyed with yellow acrylic with yellow and white swirly acrylic paint stamps. They are trimmed with the same silk flowers and are worn with backstrap style elastic straps.

The early stages of this costume are in my sidebar. Since starting this costume I've started four others. Just can't keep my mind on one thing.


  1. I love it! Its so fairylike, and pretty too. The wings are so cool!

  2. that's really pretty. Do you make them to exhibit, or to wear yourself?

  3. It is beautiful. Was it made to order or on speculation? I thought you would like Photoshop when you finally had the chance to try it out. It is quite a program, isn't it.

    The more I hear of that"Mushaboom" by Feist the more I like it! Are there other songs that are similar on the CD?

  4. speaking of your sewing obsession, I had a good talk with our Father the other day about their estate and you will get the old antique sewing machine, not the other sister!!! For other details you will have to call me!

  5. The fairy costume came out fantastic!

    I wanted to let you know I finished the Woodstock head, and thatnks for the tip with the ice packs..that really was the ticket!
    Thanks so much for your advice!
