Magic Wool Fairies, Paperback Book


Unspun sheep's wool, also known as magic wool, is a warm vibrant material, perfect for making these beautiful soft figures.

Christine Schafer includes detailed instructions on making fairies and angels for every occasion: flower fairies for a seasonal nature table, fairies for birthday celebrations, guardian angels to watch over a crib and, of course, a range of Christmas angels.

Review: 'In the fingers of German architect Schaefer, magic wool becomes the substance for creating, quite literally, a series of decorative angels that could fly as gifts or house accessories.

The equipment is simple; most tools are fairly ubiquitous to American households, including pipe cleaners, wooden beads, scissors, glue, felt-tip pens, needle, and thread.

With those at hand, the author launches her instructions -- for simple, all-in-one and two part fairies.

The more than 20 patterns feature a variety of eight-inch-high creatures, from a lavender or orchid fairy to, yes, the Christmas and tooth fairies.

Directions leave little to the imagination; color [sic] photographs are more than plentiful, especially in the first how-to section ...But great-easy-to-fashion holiday gifts.'-- Booklist Online, American Library Association
