T is for...

Today we meet Disney's most well known fairy, Tinkerbell!

Tinkerbell's story, though, is not as cheerful in the show as you'd think. She works for the Blue Fairy, like all fairies in the show do. She saves the Evil Queen before she's fully evil from committing suicide one night and she uses some of her pixie dust to follow the path with Regina to her true love, the man with the lion tattoo (that we later discover is Robin Hood), but Regina doesn't go to meet him at the tavern they found him at. She got in trouble with the Blue Fairy and ended up losing her wings. She does end up redeeming herself later, though, and earns her wings back eventually! It's kind of a long story how that happens with lots of spoilers, so follow the link or watch the show to learn more!

Stitching wise, this piece was both easy and hard at the same time. Only being one character to stitch made it easy, but the massive amounts of DMC Light Effects in the wings, collar, shoes and T was not easy! I did add the little bead to the end of her wand. It needed a little bling!

Until next time!


  1. Your Tinkerbell is so cute. I haven't done any cross-stitching in years. I did a birth record for my daughters when they were born. The design included a little fairy and I used some gold metallic thread on the wand.

  2. Beautiful stitching, Katy :-) I've never worked with the light effects thread. The bead is the perfect touch! Thanks for the background info, too :-)

  3. I think Tinkerbell is the cutest one you and Keebles have stitched. She looks awesome.


  4. Good idea adding the bead on her wand! I'm not sure I've been adding anything (although I did leave off the detail around Sidney's coat/pants area because it looked a bit weird to me), but there are times I wish I had the time!

    The worst part about the LE is when it rubs up against itself (especially in outlining) it frays like crazy! Surely, in this day and age, DMC could invent a better way to create that thread!

  5. Beautiful work! I love the LE threads.

  6. I love Tinkerbell! Beautiful.

  7. Oh, she's such a cutie. lovely stitching:)
