Rainbow Fairy Girls

Once again, I'm in a rainbow frenzy. And when I mean frenzy, I meant crocheting seven fairies representing each shade of the rainbow frenzy! What can I say? Totally gaga over rainbows. Hahaha!  

For my fairies' base, I used the Margarita doll pattern by Mia Zamora Johnson. Remember I used it's wings pattern when I made the Japanese anime version of Tinkerbell? Well this time I'm gonna use the whole enchilada.... Except the wings. Oh! The irony. ^^

Well, this project definitely wasn't a walk in the park, I can tell you that! But looking at the new additions to my amigurumi collection, my seven adorable fairies... What more can I say? Definitely worth it. -^.^-
