Hello everyone, and welcome back!

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve released a pattern, but today I’ve got a real cutie! Well, your version will be cute. 😉

As a part of the 2022 Softie CAL, I’ve designed a free pattern for y’all, meet Fern the Faery!

Fern the Faery is an energetic little creature!

She keeps the forest safe and growing thanks to her powerful magic, but beware! Don’t anger her or she’ll make your ears grow three inches in every direction!

Fern’s kind don’t have hair, but they often like to cultivate beautiful flowering vines to cover their heads with. They often change the flowers based on their mood, don’t ever go near a fairy with petunias on her head!

Make sure to take care of the trees, and you won’t ever have a problem with Fern or her friends.

Fern the Faery Pattern

Fern is a special type of faery! You can make whatever type of hair you’d like for her, and it’ll change her personality!
