Wet-Felted "Fairy Home"- Part 2 of 2

Once all of the layers of wool are on the resist...

...the pre-felt 'doorway' is applied...


                                       ...and a door knob of yellow wool is added.



                                                The two-part window is next...



                            ...with its layer of white pre-felt underneath a black grid.



                                             The project is at first only rubbed...



                                            ...and then, when it's safe to do so...

                        ...the thin plastic sheets are removed and the rolling begins. 



                                          The "fairy home" now begins to shrink...

                                        ...to even more diminutive proportions. :)



                             The roof flange is pulled out and away from the house...



                                               ...and is sectioned to resemble...



                                                   ...the petals of a flower.



                                                     For a project this small...

                             ...my narrow wooden felting tool came in quite handy!



                                                    The finished house, drying.



                                                                Once dry...

                                 ...the multi-hued roof suddenly becomes visible.



                               This tiny felt "fairy home" is now ready for installation...

                                                 ...in my cousin's dish garden.

Very cute indeed - and much smaller than I imagined from the early pictures!

That is simply adorable! I'm so glad it will have a good home. I hope you get a photo of it sitting in the dish garden, so we will see what it looks like once it's settled into it's new home. I, for one, would really like to see that. :)

Yes, Rachel-It's tiny! :)
Sandie--I will ask my cousin to take a photo once it's 'settled'! :)
