Every time a flower seed sprouts, a flower fairy is born! If you are quiet and still, you may be lucky enough to spot one of these beautiful fairies in the gloaming of twilight or the breaking of the dawn.
Flower fairies dress in leaves and petals that mimic the flowers they live in and watch over. These leaf-adorned shoes help to capture the spirt of these alluring creatures.

I loved making these little shoes! The are pretty quick and easy to put together. I learned a new method to seal the edges of the synthetic leaves. And best of all, you can let your creativity shine by adding your own shading and painting to let them come to life. I even added a little lady bug!
