Winter Christmas Fairies Cloth Doll Pattern up for sale

Please meet Candy Cane & Pepper Mint, the Winter Christmas Fairies. They are 18” long and about 8” when sitting.

The PDF and printed versions are up for sale at me Etsy and Patternmart Stores. The links are to the right.

Here's a little about the dolls:
Pepper’s wings are meant to be printed on transparency plastic. Full directions on how to make the wings is included. I also suggest using scrapbook paper instead. The transparencies are fun to use for wings. You can have a lot of fun embellishing them.

Candy’s wings are purchased butterfly wings. I tell where I bought them and give suggestions for substitutes if the doll maker can’t find them.

Both dolls have painted faces and sculpted noses. The curls are made from yarn and knitting needles. Full directions are included on how to make the yarn curls.

Pepper has a felt hat that can be worn or held. Candy has a mini top hat made from paper and glitter. Patterns and directions are included. With mini top hats being so popular right now you may be able to find one for sale in craft stores, and at Etsy. Also check Christmas ornaments. I saw some for sale at Walmart, Christmas 2013.

The ornaments they hold were purchased and I have the places I bought them listed in the directions.

The dolls have different hair styles, hats, sleeves, bodices, boot cuffs, and Pepper has mittens and knee pads. Candy’s mittens and boots are red  fabric with fur cuffs while Pepper’s boots are painted with felt cuffs.  Pepper’s hands have stitched fingers and the arms are wired. Her braids are wrapped with wire.

Hope you'll want to make your own fairies!
