Finally....the Fairy Wings



For the last 3 years I have been longingly looking at all the little girl's tops with the fairy wings on the back and just WISHING that it was worth me buying them for Ayla. But as she spent so much time on her back, I knew that no-one would see her gorgeous little wings. When she finally started sitting, the fairy wing tops were nowhere to be seen.

Ta DA!!!! I found some! Ayla wore her fairy wings for her first day back at 'school'. 'School' being the Special Ed unit where she does Conductive Education. And last week it really was all new for her. The unit moved to another facility....but she still loved it!

well you beat me! I still haven't ventured into fairy wing possibilities yet! I am sure rosella would love a pair ... She did have a bit of tulle that i tied up for her but i don't think that counts cos i used it for felting shortly after :)

Yes please...did you spin the wool too?

Thanks everyone.
@S
Yep, I spun the yarn from 90% blue faced leicester and 10% angora bunny. and left them as a lace weight single. Then I felted the single to stabilise the yarn. I'm very proud of it! Will facebook message you with a pattern tonight.....actually, i guess I could just blog the pattern right here....might do that.
