Prairie Fairy

Spent my crafting time this weekend working on a celebrity doll for the Show Business doll swap I'm hosting on Stitchin' Fingers. It's coming along nicely, but once again, it is mentally exhausting. So to get a better feeling of accomplishment, I did the finishing on this little design from Prairie Schooler. It's meant to be a luggage tag and you can insert an ID card. For this one, I backed it in the same fabric as I used for the top border. The inside is about 1/2 lined, more of a facing than a lining.



It puts me in mind of these adorable Tooth Fairy Pouches on Marie's blog. With a little adaptation, these luggage tags could serve as tooth fairy pouches too, I think.

That's so cute!
You must have made tiny stitches.
I made the stitching fairy riding on a bird. It's on linen 28ct (I think). That would make a huge luggage tag ;-)
Yours look so much better!
Nice finishing.

Kirsten, mine is on 18 count Zweigart platinum aida. I've done a couple of other fairies also that I made into tags, but I won't show them til their recipients get them. I'm planning to do the one on the bird also.

Hi Annie,

Thanks for your comment on my cupcakes, glad you liked them.

I LOVE your luggage tag, I do wish that I had the staying power to finish some of my x stitch projects especially if they looked as good as yours. I love the voluptuous mermaid, I remember that pattern, she would make a great dotee.
