This is a must-have for grandmothers. When the girls came in the door, they said, "Grandma, we wanna make fairies!" So I think we made about 20 fairies, princes and vampires today inspired by this book and my granddaughters. There was a whole lot of make believe going on. I'm exhausted and my head hurts from all the chatter. Nothing sparks story telling and fantasy more than pipe cleaners, felt, and fairies! It is a GREAT book!

Love it, Love it, Love it. Did I say I loved it?!
But really, easy instructions to make the cutest little people for seasonal tables, dollhouses, etc. We made some of these and I LOVE IT.

Awe-inspiring! Beautiful felt/tapestry/embroidery art work, with tons of patterns and instructions for adorable mini dolls. :)
I love this one. Easy to follow directions and great pictures.

Got this book today, already read it. Time to get started on my fairy for art pictures! This book is sweet. The are directions to make fairies and little people in many different sizes 1.5 inches to 4 inches. They are made of wood beads, pipe cleaners, felt, silk flowers, found natural object (acorn caps which I don't find around here). There are directions for mini purses and other little bags with felt embellishments. This is definitely a great book. Would be good for a mom of little girls.
Cute little dolls. The author's own story of her development as an artist and the photos of her art are very interesting. I like that she provides a method for doll-making for kids and adults of varying degrees of skill, and that the dolls' base is made of pipe cleaners which makes them very posable. I prefer her designs for the regular little dolls with embroidered felt clothing to the fairies though. She also has a number of cute patterns for other felt projects - like small purses.
Again with the crafty stuff. This book is just plain enchanting. I saw it referenced in another book, so I thought I'd check it out. It has step by step instructions for making dolls out of pipe cleaners, wooden beads, and felt. Since I had everything it called for except the beads, I made a few while sitting in front of the TV one night. Granted, they're headless for the moment until I can pick up some beads, but they're really cute. Even Matt had to admit they're pretty neat.
These little friends are so cute. I've made a few and had a good time doing them. Some craft projects turn out to be too hard but these were really fun and quite easy. Part of me really wants to believe in fairies and this book contributes to that wish.

Interesting little thing the wife picked up at the library. Can't help but skim through & be amazed at all the clever ideas. Keeping here in case I ever need to find it again for a craft project with the kid...
I love Ms. Mavor's art! Having it broken down in steps to make one's own attempt at is really awesome.

Such endearing little easy felt people with their acorn caps, I think everyone I met fell in love with them!
I love this craft book. Great illustrations and fun projects. Of course I loved making these felt people.
Totally cool little people made from wire, embroidery floss and wool. Just scrumptious.

I have always liked forming and manipulating small materials with my hands. Paper and pencil were never enough for me. Somehow, in my experience as a child, my own art was unfinished and plain unless something “real” was added. Treasures would be glued, stapled or sewn onto a creation to make it complete.
Years later, while at the Rhode Island School of Design, I rediscovered my childhood delight...more
