Appliqué Characters - Fairy Cakes!

I love designing fairies! These three are my Fairy Cake Fairies and are part of a larger appliquéd artwork with cake making details in a patchwork style.

Fairy cakes are great subject matter for appliqué/embroidery designs as you can add plenty of bead/sequin/trim detail until they look good enough to eat. I like the combination of fairies and cakes together reminding me of the fun cookery books I used as a child.
