Photo of the day...I'm late...

Jelly Bean the Confection Fairy however is finished...
she stands 18" tall and such a sweetie she is...has a flat face with instructions on how to color it with watercolor pencils....she has little pointed ears and painted leggings and is dressed in the illusion of costuming....she is perfect for all levels of dollmakers...comes with both individual finger pattern and mitts....she has needle sculpted toes and oh my her feet are on the larger side but that only helps her stand better...she has one little problem...every thing she touches turns to confections...OH MY....and of course the pattern tells the secrets of how to create her sweet treats from fabric...her wings are wired so that they can be posed...she is the perfect addition to every collection....pattern retails for 10.00 can be ordered from or
