A Fairy Mouse For Rosemary

Good morning Rosemary and anyone else who is interested,

I'm pleased you like my little fairies. I can't remember where I learnt the technique but it is very simple.

I either drew or found the images of the fairies, dragon or unicorn that I liked. I the reduced each image to appliqué "bits" on vixofix. I prepared a backing and batting using iron-on pellon. I appliquéd the images on to the batting/backing using satin stitch. When is was securely fix in place I carefully cut around them with a small very sharp pair of scissors, being very careful not to cut the satin stitching around the edge.

This is a photo of a little fairy mouse that I have half made. He should be finished soon!





And here he is!  Once I posted the unfinished mouse I just had to finish him.  Humm I think he needs an eye!
