A Fairy Godmother for Paige

Babies are popping out all over the place! My cousin-in-law just had a little girl named Paige. I've made a fairy godmother for the little one, wand and all, to keep all sorts of good wishes in safe keeping.

She's got a hoity paper crown on top of her lambs wool hair, and she's keeping a close eye on that felted bee to make sure he doesn't fly into anyone's bonnet.

The ragged skirt is kind of special. It contains scraps of fabric from the baby's great-grandmother who passed away a few years ago. If anyone will look over that baby it'll be her "bisnonna" :)

There's all sorts of wishes and charms hidden in her skirt. A key to open every door, a treasure chest for secret wonders, a silvery house to make a home, a lucky coin, extra buttons... loads of things every little girl will need while growing up.


  1. I am so in love with how you create such a wonderful story for everything you make. Handmade gifts are the absolute best! Love this!

  2. She's beautiful and what every little girl wishes for!

  3. I love all the thought and care that goes into the creation of these Fairy Godmothers and how each one is absolutely meant for just their child. She's beautiful.

  4. Oh, this is adorable and such a thoughtful gift!

  5. That skirt is PERFECT!! You are great at everything you do!

  6. Once again I say, any child who has your affections is the luckiest child in the world! ^-^

    What a wonderful Fairy Godmother! And I especially love how you incorporated her great grandma's fabric into the skirt. She's beautiful & will be a treasure forever. ^-^
