My Creative Space - Finished Floss Fairy


As promised, it's a short one this week - an actual finished product (so rare around these parts!) Thanks so much for all the fabulous suggestions of what I could do with Ms Floss Fairy. In the end my goddaughter decided the issue for me... she lost a tooth and I thought, she needs a tooth fairy cushion with a little pocket for her tooth... so here it is. Not having made a cushion before it is a bit wonky, but then I think perfection is highly overrated ;)

Have a lovely day and many thanks to Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space! See more 'spacers' over at Kootoyoo.

p.s. You can buy the Angel screen prints from Anna here.

Absolutely gorgeous!
(my girl lost a tooth last night!!)

Tania said...

Perfect. But desperate to see close ups - your stitchery always makes my jaw fall to the floor.

Christina said...

You have done a great job here Kylie! I thought it was supposed to be wonky, like a wobbly tooth? Love how the stitching and the fabric match so sweetly. :)

Rie said...

Great choice of colours & well stitched too! Congrats on a job well done!

she is a lucky girl to have something so special to put her tooth in......my Django has just lost 2 teeth in 2 days and he just had to put them under his pillow. I won't show him this so he won't know what he is missing.

What a great idea! I love the backing fabric, and I am quite partial to wonkiness and imperfection myself. ;) Great finished product.

very cute, and perfection I think is found in the imperfect. don't ask me why, but that's how I've always seen it. ha!

Well done! My youngest son lost his upper front tooth recently but probably would not appreciate the whimsicle fairy like I do.

Bird Bath said...

oh a tooth fairy pocket is a perfect way to use that little fairy! Don't you love it when thigs just fall into place like that :)

A tooth fairy cushion, of course, it's wonderful.
