From the Publisher
Another title from Fox Chapel Publishing that you'll find interesting is the "Great Book of Fairy Patterns" by Lora S. Irish. This is the ultimate design sourcebook for artists and craftspeople. It features over a hundred patterns, some of which are suitable for garden decorations as well as ones suited to quilts, woodworking, and other mediums. Appropriate for craftspeople of all levels, the projects feature various alternatives, such as different poses, settings, and outfits. Those interested in fairy gardens will also enjoy the introductory chapter on the history of fairies.

Faeries, butterflies, mushrooms, dragonflies, flowers, bees, and more; the various ways to assemble them; how to change Fairy poses and dress; a section on how to develop a color chart; plus patterns, patterns, and more patterns! Even includes a brief "History" of the Fairy! All these, and more, are included in this great sourcebook! The many, many patterns in this wonderful book by Lora Irish should be of use to any crafter interested in the Fae: carvers, quilters, painters... Or, even just copy the patterns and put together a fabulous coloring book for a young one. (or one young at heart!) The uses for these patterns are limited only by your own imagination! Fairy patterns are divided into sections by type, and include: Flower Fairies; Pixies; Angels; Traditional Fairies; and Modern Fairies (with even the "Rock 'n' Roll" Fairy not overlooked!) An incomparable book, to be brought out again and again!
