The girls and I sent off our Fairy Swap items a little late. Hope they forgive us, but it was so hard to part with what we had made. We were each supposed to create a Pixie Pouch using this pattern for our guide, and create 10 identical miniature fairy items. In return we will receive a different Pixie Pouch created by another participant and 10 various fairy items.
So here is what the wee ones and I came up with.
I somehow (don’t ask how, because I don’t even know how) crocheted my Pixie Pouch. I had to preload all the charms and beads on the thread before I even started.
Can I just tell you I love the details on my pouch. The silver beaded trim, fabric lining, charms and beads. I really didn’t want to send it in.
Then for my 10 identical (except in color) fairy items I sent in miniature fairy purses.
Magic Swap beads included.
Princess’s Pixie Pouch was all about our favorite Pixie Hollow fairies.
Even her lining had magical surprises.
Then we decorated 10 wee little hat boxes and each contained a fairy hair wreath.
Each little fairy hat was crocheted from very fine jewelry wire and beads and the skinniest ribbon you could find.
She even had a fairy friend waiting inside.
Then she filled ten of the tiniest little, cork-topped vials with some magic dream dust. The fairies helped her by collecting Magic Moonbeam dust (shower powder or baby powder mixed with ultra-fine non-toxic glitter). That way whenever anyone wants sweet dreams they just have to sprinkle the littlest of pinches of Fairy Dream Dust on their pillow just before bed.
The stickers we claimed from after holiday discounted Valentine Card sets.
And finally Lea’s bag.
Complete with a simple but sweet crocheted trim.
and stitched Butterfly surprise inside.
Her ten items were handmade miniature birds nests with magic eggs and wee little feathered friends.
I will put up tutorials of some of our projects soon on Mommy Blessings.
Thanks again to Missy of Fairy Child Heirlooms Weblog for hosting such a fun swap.
