Shasta Is An Extraordinary Flower Fairy - New Needle Felted OOAK Handmade Flower Fairy Art Doll by Linda Walsh

Shasta Is An Extraordinary Flower Fairy - 11" Needle Felted Handmade OOAK Flower Fairy Art Doll

Shasta is a gifted flower fairy who has an amazing green thumb. There isn't anything she can't grown or mend. If there's a sick flower or plant that needs tending Shasta is the flower fairy to see. She always knows that to do. A flower fairy with an extraordinary gift of healing.

Shasta's inner body is fully bendable and is sculpted out of Sunflower's alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber.  Her outer body, legs, arms , part of her head and pant cuffs are also needle sculpted from Sunflower's alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber.  Her hands, face, and nose are needle felted from a light pink roving. Her eyes and eyebrows are needle felted from Ivy's brown alpaca roving  from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber.  Her mouth is needle sculpted from red roving and black alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber is used for her pupils, to outline her eyes, and for needle felting her black boots .  White prime roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber is needle felted for the whites of her eyes and  her cheeks are blushed with a pink chalk.

Shasta's blue pants are needle felted from two color blue roving and her melon green shirt is needled felted from melon green roving. Her lilac daisy hair is needle felted from lilac pink roving and her green tutu leaves are needle felted from dark green moss roving.

Shasta's fairy wings are made from a combination of light blue felt and navy blue felt and are felted to her.

Shasta is sitting on her favorite wooden stool that has been sponge painted with white, gray, green and beige colors. She just finished potting a new flower in a terracotta pot. Brown roving is used for the dirt in her flower pot,royal blue roving is used to needle felt her flower and green roving is used to needle felt her flower stem.

Shasta and her friends, Pearl and Gwendolyn, have several flowers to re-pot today. Shasta figured she'd get a head start by re-potting a few before she left to meet her friends. It was a before day for re-potting. A beautiful day for healing. Especially when you're an extraordinary flower fairy with an amazing green thumb.
