Since I'm offering up a fairy for the Biological Reverse Kickstarter, I thought I should post some examples of fairies that I have made that have already found a home. EDIT: since people have told me I should sell these, I turned this thread into a Digital Market thread! If you want to buy one, you can!!! Scroll to the bottom and you should see a big black box with options for payment!

I make my fairies out of pipe cleaners, cotton embroidery floss, wood beads, and wool &/or re-purposed polyester felt. Please forgive my photography skills. They are not the best, nor is my camera! *(if you click on any of the images, you'll be taken to a full-size version of that image!)

Three sibblings, three fairies, with little holly swords and staves and interchangeable princess and Robin Hood hats

Clockwise from the top: Daffodil Fairy, Rose Fairy, Snow Fairy, and a pink fairy:

More Fairies!

Fairy riding one of my Dragons:

A family of fairies (these were my first creations--I've improved since then!)

My husband's steampunk vampire fairy...with olive hair...and a top hat...and a trench coat. This was a lot more difficult to do than the other fairies' attire!

My son chose the colors for his "fire fairy." His is the "adult" size fairy, and my daughter's is the "child" size fairy.

(I have to say, trying to take good pictures with children clambering all over me sure isn't easy!)

Here's some more pictures of the baby fairy! I swaddled it in a felt , hand embroidered thimbleberry leaf. Since I was always frustrated when baby dolls came out of their swaddles and had no arms or legs, I made sure this one did!

If you'd like a fairy, please tell me what colors you like, if you'd like butterfly-styled wings, leaf-styled wings, or no wings. Tell me what color and length of hair. The curly hair I do is just cotton that I steamed and dried when wrapped around a pipecleaner and then unwound. The curls may strethc out, especially if played with! You can also tell me if you'd like them to wear a tunic, or a skirt, or something else. And, specify if you want them to be adult-sized or child-sized or a baby.  You could also just specify what type of theme you'd like your fairy to have, like water fairy, lavender fairy, mushroom fairy, etc. and I'll run with the idea.
