Forest Fairy Crafts, a Review and Giveaway
Forest Fairy Crafts: Enchanting Fairies & Felt Friends from Simple Supplies 28+ Projects to Create & Share, by Lenka Vodicka-Paredes and Asia Currie is a new book published by Fun Stitch Studio, an imprint by CT Publishing. Fun Stitch Studio is all about the next generation and they encourage kids to "Stitch Your Art Out".
This is a "must have" book for kids that enjoy using their imagination and love Fairyland! It is an excellent book to give as a gift to a child interesting in learning to create with basic sewing projects, as well as for caregivers of children that are looking for fun projects to do with them. Heck, this book is going to be fun for adults that enjoy Fairyland too!
The projects all come with well written and easy to follow instructions, with great visuals. You can make all sorts of fairies (pretty ones, funny ones, or even scary ones. And, you can even make gnomes as well as "Treasure Keeper" projects where all sorts of little treasures can be stored. And, every project is perfect to keep or for a special gift.
Fairyland is fun for all ages. And, wouldn't a Fairy Crafty Party be delightful too! What would you serve at a Fairy Crafty Party? Of course Fairies like to eat natural foods that are healthy. Thus, I think some fruit, juice, milk, honey cakes would be appreciated by the Fairies invited to your crafty party. Please remember to take pictures and share insights on what you create (and what you serve) too!
Here are a few photos of projects made from insights in this book:
And, don't forget that this book also shows you how to make your own designs too! Possibilities for making Fairies, Gnomes and Treasure Keepers are endless.
You can find this book on Amazon, C&T Pubishing and many quilting and crafting stores.
