Meet Ada

Ada is a woodland fairy, inspired by Tinker Bell, and made using the Babushka Doll template I posted a while back.

I used felt so I didn't add seam allowances to the pattern. And then I free-handed her dress, made her a small belt, and added wings. 

I stitched some design to the wings before I attached it... though the design got a little messed up when I sewed all parts together.


Like Stella, I finished Ada a while back and she's all wrapped, tagged and ready to be dropped soon! Ada is going to be the last "friend" I will introduce to you for a while because I ran out of stuffing and I currently have no idea where to find more :-/ I found the pack of stuffing I've been using last year, Christmas time, at the Christmas decor section at a bookstore because some people shred it and put on Christmas trees and other decor to make it look like snow. I bought 2 packs and I've used up all of them. I need to find polyester stuffing first before I can make more toys :(

You can generally buy fiberfill by the yard at Carolinas, Shell Canvas and all over Divisoria ( you might have to go there after all!) Technically its not really stuffing, but you can pull the fibers apart so that you can stuff little creatures better. I've made sock dolls with children before and then it is easier to cut a piece and roll it up
