I tried to make mine like Cinderella.
Her name is tattered Rose. I didn't have any net so I used a swab instead. She started out blonde, then went auburn and after another change of mind went brunette :roll:

I've taken a little while out from getting ready for Saturday, because I really wanted to try and do this challenge.

Thanks, Maddy, for the clear instructions. I have to confess to a little cheating, but I don't think you can tell, so that's OK - and the photo makes the fairy look a bit tipsy, but I can assure you that irl she is sober!

Such a grand collection of peg fairies on here!

Love Hazel

I didn't have any pipe cleaners and the string is actually piece of a dark green curtain tie back stuff painted with the same colour as the peg. If you look closely you can just see a little green peeking through :roll:
