Fairies so small they can hardly be seen, except for the laughing child within. Fairies so happy and kind, so gentle and wild, so go on and dance my wild fairy child.

so who is this Irish Felt Fairy?

About me, fairies and the rest of my congregation

Hi, most people call me Frances even though my proper name Franziska. Born and reared in Switzerland. Then went with my fairy good instinct to Ireland, where fairy cupid changed my life.

I, my husband and two almost up grown girls live in Dooneen.  Surrounded by the beautiful  Irish countryside.

Dooneen means hill and fairy fort.

Can you see the theme there…..

I’m a textile fairy designer, I believe in having a good time while doing what I love and I love what I do.

Hand stitched and felted fairies to perfection ( I would think) in the mystic heartlands of Roscommon .

So do fairies really exist? Who knows? For me they represent , my inner child, unconditional love, happy and sad memories, companion, unexplained beauty , first light every morning , golden barley…………..

Not to mention they are easy to get along with, never argue with my ideas or disagree. Always listen and are always here when I need comfort.

Fairies are easy kept. Don’t lock them up, they don’t fly away….except they see a moth. Fairies love the comfort of a cosy home and much prefer to be kept inside, they turn green when left outside. I suppose this camouflages them a little.

Fairies come in all sort of shades, shapes and colour. But one thing they all have in common is the fear of dogs.

Fairies so small they can hardly be seen, except for   the laughing child within. Fairies so happy and kind, so gentle and wild, so go on and dance my wild fairy child.
