Flower Fairy (Hunnybunnies Series) by Kathleen Dodge DeHaven, felted art pieces
Mini Hunnybunny “Flower Fairy” by Kathleen Dodge DeHaven
($85 plus $25 shipping and insurance)
Only 2” tall, the sweet Mini Hunnybunny Flower Fairy takes a little rest from flitting through the garden. The Flower Fairy is made of wool with a process called needle felting. The artist tangles the wool fibers with a special barbed needle. She pierces the wool over and over until she sculpts just the shapes she wants. The flower is also made of wool, but this time, the fibers are tangled and sculpted with water, soap, and agitation in a process called “wet felting.”
These tiny felted treasures are recommended for older children and adult collectors. Keep your felted artwork out of direct sunlight; should it be necessary, brush off any dust or lint with a tiny artists’ paintbrush.
