Garden Fairies are whimsical and fun loving creatures, but they are sometimes very shy. That's why they have such clever houses, which look like leaves, but have a secret entrance underneath. You never know when a Garden Fairy might be quietly napping there.
This is a pattern and instructions to make your own Garden Fairy Play Set. You will get a 7 page digital .pdf file with complete instructions and full sized patterns to make a garden fairy doll and a zippered leaf house. Photos accompany almost every step in the instructions, with close up shots to help show you what to do. Also includes step by step instructions for embroidery stitches used for the doll's faces.
You will need an assortment of fabric and felt scraps, a sewing machine, scissors and other sewing supplies to complete this project. Detailed materials list is included with the pattern. You should have a little experience with using a sewing machine and hand sewing. This project is suitable for beginners.
Extra photos are included to show variations on the basic patterns and ideas for adding to your play set.

My name is Becka Rahn and I am a geek for fiber art and technology. My own art work is a fusion of high and low-tech techniques - digitally printed fabric, laser cut bamboo and acrylic combined with hand embroidery and weaving.
I grew up in Rapid City, SD and spent my very first paycheck from a summer theater job to get a sewing machine, which I still have. Every surface of my house is covered with something-in-progress all the time. I am not kidding, just ask my family.
My day job is as an art teacher and administrator at a fiber art center, where I teach sewing, felting, digital & technology skills to beginners of all ages. (www.textilecentermn.org)
I have designs published in 101 One Yard Wonders and its sequel and you can find all kinds of tutorials, art and random thoughts, links to me at Ravelry, Spoonflower, Etsy and more at my blog: www.beckarahn.com
