Fairy Garden Finished!

At last I’ve found time to post the final pictures of the Fairy Garden of the Crochet-A-Long by Mad Crochet Lab. The photos are made with a camera lend to me by my boyfriend. They’re supposed to be of a better quality than the ones I made with my phone, but not all are… They give you an idea though…

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did by making the garden. It’s still standing on the table, so I can look at it (often).

But…. I can hardly wait for the next CAL! 😉

Fairy

She is ready to go into the CAL fairy garden, my fairy.

Some say she’s a bit witchy. But even fairies need witches, don’t they? Her hat is a flower turned upside down. She has stockings made of purple heather. Her wings are gauze and inspired by a picture Elzeblaadje took of a butterfly which looks like a fairy.

Hope you’ll like her as much as I do 🙂 It was fun to make her from the basic humanoid pattern of the Mad Crochet Lab: http://madcrochetlab.com/yarndango-project-25-basic-tiny-humanoid-form/, although mine is without boobs… I meant her to be a fairy in another sense of the word 😉 That’s why she/he has a bra with tassels…. She/he is what you make of her/him.

Tadaaa!

Fairy Garden Crochet-A-Long so far

On Facebook Mad Crochet Scientist started a Crochet-A-Long for a Fairy Garden. As I never had participated in a CAL, I was very excited to do my first one!

The first challenge was “trees”. There were some very nice trees on Mad’s blog: http://madcrochetlab.com/mad-cal-fairy-theme/

My trees and a mushroom I made before:

Trees

The second week the theme was “Furniture and Furry Friends”. First there was some meadow to make. I used fluffy and cotton for this, very boring to make 😉 An extra tree was a nice distraction. This one is made in black with sparkling thread, a real fairy tree!

As fan of the movie Labyrinth, I crocheted the Worm (as seen in a previous post), so he could be an extra in the garden as Furry Friend 🙂 I wanted to make a bridge, but then you need a brook… And water comes in the brook through a waterfall…. So, I made a brook and a waterfall and a bridge. But you need to get on the bridge by a path. That became the Yellow Brick Path. And because it’s actually the Troll Bridge, I had to make a Troll, lurking in the dark… His head and right hand are just visible.

These had to go in the container I have reserved for the project, which is meant to be a kind of lamp:

The Worm now has find a new home on and in the tree trunk.

Inspired by the movie Brave in a matter of minutes some will-o’-the-wisps were born:

Here’s the final result, so far, without any fairies, although there are some fairy lights to lure them:
