Fairy Wings for Barbie!

Hello everyone! I’ve been silently busy working on a new project…. a small(ish) granny square blanket full of new applique designs. I don’t want to say much now, but I’m considering putting on my first CAL if it turns out as magical as my draft drawing!

In the process of constructing an applique for my new blanket… out pops these fairy wings! Not what I set out to make but there they were and I thought… hey, those might fit on a Barbie type doll! Sure enough! I love it when accidents turn into something beautiful. 🙂
