What better way to spend a weekend than down in Devon at Debbie’s from Little Oke dolls doing a workshop with Phoebe from Lavender and Lark. Our task for the weekend was to make a faerie and a toadstool.
First of all we made the smallest noses imaginable from modelling clay, while these were drying out it was time for the body and the all important facial features.
Each little faerie had it’s own personality and it was lovely to see them each coming to life. There were piles of vintage lace, hand dyed silks, embroidery threads laid out on the table and our imagination flowed. I was so engrossed I forgot to take pictures of this bit!
I did take one sneaky picture of Julia and my doll, it was so work in progress so please excuse the bald head and the voodoo like pins!
Then onto making a toadstool and a mossy stone. What was amazing was the variety of dolls that was produced, each faerie and toadstool unique. It was a very special weekend. Here are a few faeries that were completed I did miss a few (sorry fellow crafters)
Then finally here is my little faerie Sylvie, she wanted a new dress and I knew I had some beautiful lace for her at home. She is going to be a giveaway, so here’s what you do

Then on 10th November 2018 I will make a draw and the winner will receive the faerie and toadstool. Please note that it is an ornament and not for children, all the clothes are attached to the body and the faerie is firmly attached to her toadstool.
