Need any matches? I just emptied two of these boxes of matches so I could make fairy beds. Yes, I said fairy beds. Warning: no quilty pictures in this post.
Here's the story. My 6 year old granddaughter, Abby, has a fairy house that DS helped her make. The problem is, there aren't any fairies living in it. While visiting them, I just happened to see a youtube video
on how to make fairies and told my DIL that I might make them. In fact I looked for the supplies while I was there, but didn't find them.
These are the fairy dolls I made for Abby.
Next, I made a tiny mattress and pillow for each "bed." They had to be rather flat or the "bed" wouldn't close. My oldest GD helped me by covering the inside of the bed as well as the outside with pretty paper and gluing the buttons on.
Here's the outside of the match boxes covered with pretty paper and decorated with buttons (from my vast collection).
The fairy just fits in the match box bed.
Here are both of them in their "beds." I hope Abby likes them.
Yesterday I finally got back to getting my log cabin quilt put together. I want to get it finished!
