When I was a little girl I absolutely loved fairies and elves, so naturally when I started designing knitted toys a fairy doll was one of the first things that came to mind. However, the thick nature of knitted fabric didn’t lend itself well to the delicate form of a fairy and it never worked out. Aisling the Elf (so named for the mystical little spirit of The Secret of Kells) has a sturdy little knitted body, but her finer details come the sewn accents of her wings, wig, and tutu. If you aren’t interested in sewing, you could leave off the wings and tutu, and she would still be a pretty cute little doll.
