Flower Fairies: Bluebell, Morning Glory and Primrose
These flower fairies are available to purchase on CastleofCostaMesa Etsy store.
May 24, 2013. My 8 year old daughter Nunu and I made a little spring craft:
The early weeks of May had brought me through some rocky roads which eventually led to some wonderful miracles and options. By mid May 2013, I can now gratefully say that the trials had turned out to be harbinger of good things and new options. How lovely!
During the more challenging days, I comforted myself by buying myself an assortment of colorful and sparkly Angelina fibers to try out in wet-felting. I was so happy and excited to receive them in the mail. YAY! Fun materials to play with! You can click on the picture below if you want to get some yourself.
Nunu and I spent some mommy and me time making some flower fairies.
Our magical flower fairies pretending to be just flowers… Bluebell (with her bell), Morning Glory and Primrose. When no one is looking, the ladies will come out to frolic in the bushes!
The Purple One: Morning Glory Flower Fairy
This flower fairy is for sale on CastleofCostaMesa’s Etsy store here.
Our Morning Glory flower fairy in our fruiting black berry bushes.
Her hair was made with shiney and deliciously luscious Angora kid mohair locks. Her skirt was felted from wool, and a touch of sparkly Angelina fiber for that magical look.

The Pink One: Primrose Flower Fairy
This was the first one I made. You can purchase her on my Etsy store here.
The Bluebell Flower Fairy Handmade by Nunu with some mama help
It was a lot of fun to craft with my 8 year old Nunu. She has a daily piano practice routine after school. When she is not playing the piano or busy reading (she loves to read!) I am happy to craft and chat or sing songs while crafting with her. Much fun!
I am proud of Nunu’s design and crafting skills. I helped her a little.
The short, sad and beautiful tale of the “Forget-me-not” child by Reg Down
We love the Tiptoes Lightly Books by Reg Down. As my daughter and I were making these flower fairies, we wondered aloud if we should make table top puppet dolls for the beautiful story of “The Forget-me-not” child for our table top puppet show. The “Forget-me-not” child story is such a beautiful and sad story.
Here is an excerpt of the short, sad and beautiful tale of the “Forget-me-not” child from Reg Down’s Tiptoes Lightly book, Big-Stamp Two-Toes the Barefoot Giant. This was our very first of the Tiptoes Lightly books. The are beautiful soul foods for the child and adult! By now, my 8 year old has voraciously read all his children’s books and is eagerly waiting for him to write more!
Auburn Flower Fairy
Memorial weekend, May 2013. Nunu made this flower fairy. I helped her modify it to my taste until she no longer likes it (It is now my favorite flower fairy). Now she forbids me to modify any of her future creations! Sigh! I have becomed a kibitzing mama!
May 29, 2013 Tuesday. I finally photographed this new flower fairy, at Tanager Park.
This flower fairy is available for purchase on my Etsy store here.
Buttercup, the blonde Flower Fairy
Memorial Day weekend, May 2013. I like how this doll turned out, understated. For me, understating is a challenge, since I love details!
May 29, 2013. Photographed at Tanager Park with a carload of organic groceries on the side of the road.
June 22, 2013. The Buttercup flower fairy was sold along with 2 other fairies from my Castle of Costa Mesa Etsy store.
Thank you Jen for the feedback photos! I hope Leah loves her fairies!
Violet, The Flower Fairy
Memorial Day weekend, May 2013. This is the most voluptuous looking flower fairy of all. Flower fairies need to have a more innocent look. I think she will make a good earthy young queen or human doll.
This doll is available for purchase on my Castle of Costa Mesa Etsy store here.
Violet was selected as a prize by the winner of my Spring 2013 Flower Fairy giveaway. She has since went to live in Slovenia with Tatiana.
