Fairy's and Fairy Stuff

Mallory and I joined Missy's A Fairy Went to Market Swap. I made two bags from Missy's tutorial and then sent them to Missy along with 10 things for Mallory's swap and 10 for mine. Missy then sent us back a different bag and it was filled with 10 things that other people made. It was really fun and I honestly can't believe how creative all of the ladies who participated are! I only am showing a few of the pictures (which I borrowed from Missy), but Mallory and I received some really cool fairy items.

This is the bag that Mallory received. She LOVES it!

Here are some little crocheted bags with leaves on them

for my fairy to take to Market with her.

So cute!!

and then Val from YarniGras made these cute little Fairy Fireplaces out of seashells.Very Creative Val!

This is the bag I received. It was made by Jen.

I love the little flowers and dandelions in the fabric and then the butterflies are appliqued on.

This is the bag I made for Mallory to send in

and then I made 10 of these butterfly pins.

This is the bag I sent in

and then I made these little butterfly wands

Then for Yarni Gras Year of Enchantment Swap our Febuary theme was Fairies. My partner was AwtemNymf and we were both running behind so that's why I'm just now posting about this swap. Here is the beautiful Angelic Fairy that Sandy made for me and she's in my favorite color. I think she is so pretty! Thanks Sandy!

and then here is the little fairy/brownie that I made for Sandy. I'm not very good at drawing faces, but all and all I think he turned out pretty cute.

Oh I loved seeing all these goodies. I think you are so creative! I linked to your blog in my last post and showed a picture of the cross that you sent me. I forgot to tell the funny story about Granny keeping both of them!!! Smile.
