  9. Use felt-tip pens to add the rest of the facial features. 
     
  10. Use an overcast stitch to prevent the organza circles from fraying. Cut a small hole in the center of each organza circle, add a drop of glue to the skewer just below the flower and push the bottom end of the kebab skewer through the opening.
     
  11. Gather the fabric around the skewer and use the ribbon to make a bow to keep the “dress” from slipping down. Cut the ends of the bow shorter to make it neat.

  14. Push the bottom part of the skewer into the polystyrene hand. Add a drop of polystyrene glue and allow to dry, making sure that the fairy is standing upright.

I love this! I am definitely making this for my daughter. Will probably not include the bottom part so she can use this for writing.
