Fairies & Knights

One of our family’s autumn traditions is enjoying a day at the Renaissance Festival. The last weekend of the season always includes a “school day” when the tickets are much more affordable and the crowds are much sparser. Although Daddy had to work this year, we convinced Gammy and OthyRead More →

This weekend we are excited to be working with Sarah’s Silks to offer our readers another awesome give-away. My children have “grown up” draped in Sarah’s Silks. They have been a part of their dramatic play, turning every day children into knights and fairies. They’ve added rivers to the gnomeRead More →

There is a pure joy in running free and dancing, especially with a rainbow of ribbons streaming behind you! Make one or two for all the wee hands in your life. Whether children are dancing to their favorite songs or simply to the music of nature, Fairy Ribbon Rings will make the experience magical!   To make your own you will need: Materials: (1) 3″ wooden ring  (6) ribbons 1/4″ wide x 48″ long   fine grade sandpaperRead More →

Nothing in this world is as magical as the eyes of a child. These eyes can turn a cardboard box into a castle, a handkerchief into a doll, and a stick into a sword. Unfortunately, as we get older, we often lose the awe, and we need Hollywood to makeRead More →

Fairy’s request this year for Halloween was to be Little Red Riding Hood. Mainly she wanted this cape! I was a bit worried when I cast on a couple weeks ago whether or not it would be done on time. We have our first Halloween festivities next weekend. Although I missedRead More →

Because it is often hard to find things to make for older boys, and I know many of you are still looking for ideas for small gifts, I wanted to repost this. Bug loved the movie The Never Ending Story. (Joy of joys, he's now ready to read the book.  The Never Ending Story. I will need to remember to give it to himRead More →

There is a joy in running free and dancing til you wear out your shoes! Running and dancing with Fairy Ribbon Rings makes the experience more delightful. Here are the very easy, non sewing directions for making your own Fairy Ribbon Rings. This is a great craft to do withRead More →

It’s Autumn! Leaving are falling, the air is scented with delicious, woodsy aromas, and the secrets of the forest beckon to us all… child and adult alike. The only thing better than running through the leaves, is running through the leaves with fall colored ribbons streaming in the breeze! Another oneRead More →

Here is the Un-Pattern for the Child’s Dress-Up Vest. (Why an UN-Pattern? Because you actually have to draw up your own pattern… we just tell you how we made ours). For this project I used about 1 yard of Navy Corduroy and 1 Yard of a cotton print and 3 largeRead More →

Dress up clothes are played with daily around here. The box that is supposed to contain them is usually dumped all over the library floor in the kids’ attempt to find some magical accessory that must always be at the very bottom of the bucket. Since they love dress up…Read More →

We are calling this the Pirate Shirt UN-PATTERN. I totally winged this pattern and don’t have the normal step-by-step photos you have come to love about WeeFolkArt (although there are still a good handful). There was a lot of just fudging it that went on and fortunately Pirate Shirts areRead More →

    So, after all the “girlie” knitting and sewing that has been going on around here, I got a chance to make a tabard and cloak for Bug. I must admit I’m thrilled with how it turned out. When Bug saw it, the only word out of his mouthRead More →
