forest fairy crafts blog tour!

Six years ago, C&T Publishing released the book Forest Fairy Crafts by Lenka Vodicka-Paredes and Asia Currie. The joy with which this book was written is contagious, and it overflows with magic.

So, you can imagine my delight when I heard that a follow-up book, titled Forest Fairy Crafts Through the Seasons, was in the works. C&T Publishing shipped out a copy to me (via fairy-mail, of course), and it was a happy day when the book landed on my doorstep.

Please keep reading to the end of this blog post for more information about the blog tour for Forest Fairy Crafts Through the Seasons plus information about a GIVE-AWAY to win an ebook version.

As with all craft books which arrive on my doorstep, they are immediately commandeered by my younger son.  This book is 143 pages long, however my son didn't make it past page 42, where he was enchanted by the idea of stitching a tiny fairy baby.

At nearly 9 years old, my son hardly needed my help with this project. I cut the felt body for him, threaded a needle and knotted the end of the thread -- he did the rest. NB there is a helpful section at the end of the book with ideas for ways to assist children of varying ages + skill levels with sewing projects. Given my son's comfort with sewing, I was free to sit with him and stitch up a fairy baby, too.

From start to finish, gathering supplies to gluing acorn caps, this project took us 45 minutes -- a perfect after-school activity.

  1. I love your fairy babies, and your son did a great job. (Don't put me in the draw for this wonderful book though, as I already have a copy) :)

  2. Those look charming! And so good to see you back :-)

  3. These little fairies are adorable! I am impressed by the wonderful job your son did! Thank you for offering this book.

  4. My daughter would have great delight in being able to see her drawn stories come alive with hand sewn fairies which she could make herself.

  5. These look like such fun projects to make with grandchildren.

  6. My girls are just getting into sewing at 9 and 7. I’m sure they would love this. Your son did an amazing job

  7. I imagine it is the fairies that sprinkle their magic when they cover us in autumn leaves. When we come home after a long walk through the woods and we find pine cones and acorns in our pockets - it was the fairies who put the treasures there for us to find. Only children know this.
    I admire your son's patience and would love to enter the draw.

  8. I adore those fairies your son made- and the wings!? Just perfect! I hope to win this e-book so I can make some too- I've missed you and your wonderful entries on FB... I hope life is being good to you and your family! Thank you for being a part of the giveaway... I'm excited!
