I am the craftiest daughter of a very crafty mother. She taught me a lot of crafty basics when I was young. In k-12, I used to get in trouble for drawing on my schoolwork. Later on I picked up a paintbrush and taught myself how to paint. For a brief period in college, I played with a computer based paper doll program (kisekae) and I got quite handy with a mouse. Today, I use my chronic doodling habit to develop cross stitch and embroidery patterns.
I post a new pattern on the First and Third Mondays of each month. My most recent pattern is usually available for free at first, so make sure you check back regularly.
This Little Goth Fairy came to life on the pages of my battered and bruised sketchbook on a particularly gloomy day. As she was born, my dark and dour mood lifted and turned to one of whimsy.
She comes along with some little bit of scrolling ornamentation that you can use to dress up her surroundings. She works best with a simple backstitch or similar outlining stitch.
This pdf file comes with the fairy in both 6 inch and 4 inch tall sizes in a complex and simplified form and both original as well as mirror images for a total of 8 different configurations.
Also included are some directions and guidance for pattern transference and color selection.
