As promised, a new pattern for a new primitive fairy softie. I made her from tea dyed cotton, vintage buttons and lots of love. I hope you enjoy this free softie sewing pattern. I’d love to see how you’ve taken her and made her yours, so send photos!!!
A few quick directions:
1.Make a freezer paper pattern by tracing the pattern pieces onto the paper side of the freezer paper. Trace two arms.
2.Iron the fabric you are working on and fold it so there are two layers of fabric. Cut these pieces out of the paper and iron onto the cotton or other fabric you’ll be working with.
3.Stitch around all pieces, except the bottom piece and wings, leaving the straight edge on the bottom of the faerie unstitched. Back stitch at the turning flap, both sides.
4. Remove the freezer paper pattern. Cut pieces out of the fabric. Clip curves and the triangle at the mouth. Stitch the bottom to the body. Turn all pieces right side out.
5. Sandwich a piece of cotton batting between two pieces of fabric. Pin or iron on wing pattern. Stitch around wing. Remove paper. Top stitch the veins in the wing.
5. Boil some water and steep some tea bags. Put your faerie in the tea until is the color you want. Rinse and let dry.
6. Stuff! Sew opening together with a blind stitch.
7. Attach wings and arms. Give her some funky hair and eyes. Embellish as you choose! Most of all, have fun!
