An Angel for an Angel

After seeing Cherry's vintage Christmas fairy, which was her mums it inspired me to make one for my daughter for her to keep for years to come.

I made the body from caleco and used vintage silk and lace hankerchiefs for the dress and wings, these were  given me from a great friend years ago. The trim was from odd bits of ribbons i had in my sewing box.

I used three different back grounds to display my fairy to see which one brought out the best picture, but as i like all three i have published them all.

Its amazing what you can do when you are inspired by other bloggers. Thanks Cherry.x


  1. Ho Linda the Fairy is delightful - and what a Treasure for your Daughter xxxxx

  2. Thanks! I was very pleased with it and can't wait to give it to my daughter on Christmas Day.

  3. Oh this is lovely!!!

    If you crop the black picture, it will look just like your angel is flying.

    Happy Christmas
