We are still in summer here so we made summer fairies, but for those of you coming into spring these little dolls will dance beautifully hung among the branches of flowers on your tables. Or perhaps you could hang one as a gaurdian angel above your child's bed.
Divide the roving in half lengthwise (half thickness) and tie a firm (not tight) knot in the center.
Fold you fleece in half over the knot, so now you have a front and back. The knot is your head; take your ribbon and tie firmly around the neck (take care not to strangle her!) with the knot at the back of her neck.
To add the silk bit, thread a needle with coordinating floss and stitch small running stitch along the long edge; gather it up and stitch it to her back with small, neat stitches. Then bring the thread out through the top of her head and snip it of at a good hanging length. Fluff out her skirt a little and you are done.
