One evening I was stitching happily when the bobbin case exploded. What an incredible… fascinating… MESS! I quickly grabbed my camera to take photos.
The unwound thread – in its loose spirals – intrigued me. What a waste of thread… but surely I can turn this into something positive.
And that’s when I realized fairy hair comes from serendipitous moments such as these!
This week’s assignment: It’s easy to loose your cool when things go terribly, unexpectedly wrong. Share a time when you were able to turn lemons into lemonade.
About the Model
Mavis, with her beautiful bobbin hair, is inspired from the book, Wee Felt Folk – New Adventures by Salley Mavor. She is wearing a designer skirt from the great fashion house, “Daffodil Fashions,” a fictitious high-end fashion designer in a far-away place known as Fairyland in the country of Lambicornia. The garment top is a pattern from Mavor’s book. I added the decorative stitching using a built-in stitch from the Baby Lock Ellisimo, then I hand stitched beads.. because, well, Fairies like to dress over the top!
