Flower Brooch for Daylin

I made this brooch some months back when I was on sabbatical leave, I originally wanted to turn into a hairband. That day, when Dawn and kids came over for a play date as well as to pick up Meya's hand-me-downs. I have no one else to pass to and I dont think my plan for having a second kid will ever happen. Oh well, its better to pass to a good friend then to sell the old clothes online. Dawn said the dresses are coming in handy as she needed to attend a wedding in Sept. So, I decided to make the flower into a brooch for Daylin to pin on her dress.

Meya's Woordland Fairy Party - Work in Progress Part 2

It's the Hari Raya long weekend, which gives me some time to put more things together for the party.

Fairy in apothecary jar
I added the small pebbles for the bottom of the base, then filled it with green moss, then I added the twigs, bigger pebble. I bought the fairy from The Better Toy Store at Ngee Ann City for $12.90. So happy it was the right size for the jar. I wanted to take photos of the steps taken to built the jar, but halfway I was distracted by Meya's persistent coughing. So when I came back to the task, it totally slipped my mind.

Goodie bags for the little boys
I used the sushi decor for the grass and hand-cut the printed mushrooms. This year, I have a little helper, she helps me to add glue onto the sushi grass and mushrooms :) I made thank you pegs using the leaves we collected from the playground.
