Chicks and Daffodil Fairy

I did some chicks out of a very fluffy yellow polyester fabric I found once in a thrift store. The eggs are felted. I followed instruction by Nicole from Frontier Dreams that she published in Rhythm of the Home. It was very fun to do! You can't really see but the opening is blanket stitched. I plan on making some more eggs to hide more treasures in them.

I guess you could make the chicks with felt too. I didn't draw the pattern, but if one of you ask for it, I will post it :)

And this is my daffodil fairy!

Nothing that special, very easy to do! So easy, I was able to free-hand draw at the computer the shape you'd need to cut in order to make one yourself.

Just paint the head and dress yellow, let dry and pop the petal over! No sewing!

Really, I'm posting this for Wulf. ahah! Else I would have waited for my camera to come back. I really hope I have it by the equinox! So here's to my biggest fan ;) and better pictures to come someday.... Oh, I need to start making that Hen, too! Who would have let so many eggs every where in our house??

I will add this to the Sewing Bee. I thought I would share some practical sewing or a little dress this week.. but no. I haven't touched the sewing machine. At. All. (it makes me a little sad...)


  1. Very cute! I just bought some wooden peg dolls, so I can try making a little flower fairy too, now. :)
    I am looking forward to your getting your camera back, as well! ;-D

  2. The daffodil faery is adorable! And the chicks with their eggs! I just love it all!! This weekend the kiddo and I are going to be making your bunnies from last year.

  3. What a simple, lovely project! You could adapt it to lots of other flowers, like daisies or sunflowers.

    I hope M. has fun with it!

  4. Just been looking around your site, your dolls are sooo lovely. Love them
