FAIRY SHOES
I really enjoyed making and beading these wee fairy shoes.The shoes are
made from cream colored Ultrasuede and lined(fairy feet are very delicate you know!)
Sequins,glass beads and mini pearls make them special. They will be worn by one of my fairy dolls which is in the making.The shoes are 3" long.....Can you imagine a fairy doing the "Light Fantastics"wearing them! ;-}

ahhhh - are they in the Annette Emms style? I have the pattern here to do and you have inspired me. She came to talk to my local embroidery guild a few weeks ago and was fascinating.

The shoes look pretty! Sure would like it if your pictures could be clicked on to see larger. My old eyes just can't see those pretty little shoes. I can't imagine beading something that small. Would love to see your dolls!

Gorgeous little slippers, Maggie. Will be watching to see them on one of your dolls. These are great.

Ooooh! Maggie I adore them, they are just beautiful. You are amazing the way you make things so teeny tiny - what incredible patience (and eyesight!) you have!
...Do you think middle aged ladies could wear fairly shoes?!

Keep crafting

Hi to everyone that left such sweet comments.
I have been working vigorously on a quilt and have not had any time to create my fairy doll....
Does anyone know if you can CLONE yourself??!! ;-}
Anyway whilst I am quilting, I am thinking about how I will do the fairy doll. I think she might be about 15 inches tall.... Maybe smaller Not sure...Don't want her to look all feet...hahahahaha!!

I LOVE these!! They are so delicate, over-the-top gorgeous, and I can hardly wait to see the little fairy that gets to wear them.

I'm working my way through all the OWOH comments I got, visiting around and enjoying seeing what people are up to.

Just so sweet and beautiful. I love mine, and I can't wait to make some. I bought some tiny pretty sequins at the bead shop last month, so I am ready to play.
