Modification Monday: Garden Variety Fairy


Original Pattern: Sally, the Eco Fairy

Knitter Extraordinaire: Tau (Ravelry Id)

Mods: Eliminated the wings and made the ears bigger for a more elvish fairy; created a customized knitted wardrobe which includes knitted underpants (!!), a beautiful lacy dress, galoshes, and a capelet.

What Makes This Awesome: As soon as I saw this, I went completely bananas. I think this is the most darling knitted toy I've ever seen- I love this little garden fairy. Have you see the underpants? Too cute! Promise me you'll go and check out all the amazing, detailed photos on the project page- it's totally worth it. The detail of the hair is incredible, and there is not a single detail of this mod I would change.

That is seriously adorable. There's something very very cute about the little shawl, and aesthetically satisfying about that pointed edge lace she chose for the dress. Awesome.
