This little fairy flitted around my studio for several years. I intended to put her on a denim vest and never did. Every time she surfaced I tried to put her to use but nothing was ever quite right.
Then I remembered this skirt in my upcycle stash:
And ta da! She had a home. It took me a while and some (ok, lots of) reverse sewing before I landed on the right “moody” feel I wanted for the bag. I was happy to finally utilize some hand-dyed ribbon in my stash as well as the raggedy rose. Once I got rolling it was like she was telling me what she wanted.
The hardest thing was taking her to the consignment shop!
