Sewing with Felt: Cute Felt Fairies

Autumn fairy

The ikatbag blog is one of my favorite places to find neat things to make for kids. I’m nowhere near the seamstress LiEr is, but I was able to use her pattern to make these cute, roughly three-inch-tall felt fairy dolls.

Lilac fairy

They represent everything I love about handmade toys – whimsical, imperfect (especially when I make them!), and possible to replace, if, say, your son loses his because he brought it to the Boston Children’s Museum and then cries for it as you’re leaving to drive to speech therapy from your friend’s parking spot (thanks, R!) after taking the stroller on the T to get to the actual museum.

Boy fairy

Except, of course, the replacement will never look exactly the same, especially when you adapt the pattern to turn a girl fairy into a boy but don’t write down the changes. Which is why I was super lucky that he had just zipped the doll into his stroller blanket, as we discovered a few days later!
