Isn't this just the prettiest sight you've ever seen. This is what made the highlight of my day. Ah !!! the rewards of a designer. I cannot begin to express my feelings to see the joy on this pretty little angel's face upon recieving her fairy comfort blanket.
Shell made this Filet Fairy for her daughter Jessie. Here is Shell's story, posted with Shell's permission of course. Images are copyrighted to Shell . You can read all about shell and Jessie at their blog: http://shell-n-jessi.blogspot.com/
"I was recently RAoK'd the most giant ball of Mainstays arcrylic WW yarn, so I
decided to make a fairy to place on Jessi's bed when it is made. Almost like a
decorative throw thingy. I wasn't sure. Well as I worked it up and saw how big
it was getting, I thought it would make a brilliant "comfort blanket" for her.
She is 4 and spends a bit of time in hospital either as an in patient or an
outpatient. Either way, we seem to be there a lot! So I thought it would be a
lovely thing to carry around with her. To hold when she is sad, to remind her of
home when she can't be here, and to always know how much her mummy loves her.
It's crocheted with the free Filet
Fairy pattern on Ferosah's site with Walmart Mainstays WW and a 4.5mm hook. I
started yesterday afternoon and finished today. Really quite quick It's probably
a bit too big. How big? Well, from th tip of the uppermost wing to the tipof her
toes (measaured straight, not tip to tip) it's 46inches!! Jessi is only about
She loves it! Got told she couldn't have something just
after I gave it to her so grabbed her fairy and went off for a sulk Mission
accomplished.... Thanks for a great pattern Ferosah! Maybe I might do this with the butterfly one day.
Imagine how big that will be!!! "
Thank you Shell for sharing your story with me, I am Honoured.
