According to my grandmother, we had fairies to thank for all things beautiful on the earth. From her imagination (and from mine), here is Rosalie, the Red Rose Fairy.
Blue-eyed and raven-haired, she is dressed all in teal blue, with a cascade of roses, rosebuds, and leaves that flow down her body to her toes. The golden three-leaf motif at her neckline also encircles her wrists, and her colorful wings bear portraits of her favorite flower.
Rosalie is 12 1/4 inches tall, and her wings measure 8 inches across. She is made from 100% cotton fabric which is sewn, stuffed, and completely hand-painted with acrylic paints. I quilted her wings and attached them separately. She holds a wand made from wire, with a rose at the tip that I created from ribbon.
There is a small loop in the back of Rosalie’s head, should you wish to hang her up. She can also sit in a chair or on a shelf, or stand with a doll stand. (Chair and doll stand not included.) She is signed and dated, and sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation.
