Meet the Pixies - Your Sewing Adventure Friends!
Hi, My name Candy!
I love the color pink and my favorite thing to do is bake. I'm also learning how to sew, which is a lot of fun! The very first thing I learned to make was a lovely pink hair bow. I like to wear it when I gather the ingredients for my yummy sweets. In the kitchen, while baking my special treats, I wear my kitchen apron. Many days I'm in the kitchen making brownies, cookies and cupcakes - mostly for pixie parties.
Using a pinch of pixie magic, I can make the most mouth-watering chocolate, truffles and caramels you have ever tasted. I also make healthy snacks like my delightful honey oat granola bars. It's all deliciously famous with my pixie friends and family. I enjoy surprising them with goodies that I stash away in my pretty purse. After a fun day of baking and sewing, I like to cozy up with my neck roll that looks like candy in a wrapper and my plush pillow.
My favorite flower is a pink rose, and I always keep a vase full next to my bed. Their sweet scent helps me to drift off to sleep after a long day In the morning the aroma inspires me to create once again. I love connecting through the pixienet with friends around the world to share recipes and sewing ideas!
Hello everyone, I’m Mandy!
My favorite color is purple, which is the color of my very favorite flower, the violet. I love to go shopping! Most the time I window shop, but sometimes I find a treasure that I really want. That's when I start saving coins and go treasure hunting for more. Each time I find a coin, I put it in my secret coin purse for safe keeping.
When I have enough coins saved up I return to buy that special keepsake. When I shop, I wear my sweet skirt and my pretty rosy ribbon. I love my ribbon because I can wear it on my wrist as a bracelet, around my neck as a choker or at my waist as a belt. It makes me feel very fashionable! I also carry my chic tote. It has plenty of room for any treasures I find.
After a fun filled day of shopping, I enjoy having dinner with my friends at the Pixie Palace. We like many different kinds of food, but my very favorite food is rice with fish and veggies rolled in seaweed. Every night when I go to sleep, I wish for coins to appear under my small doll pillow. They haven't appeared yet, but that doesn't keep me from wishing. I'm learning how to sew, just like you!
Together we can learn how to sew my pretty purple projects!
Hello, I’m Pandy!
I’ve been busy today learning how to sew a potpourri sachet in my favorite color, blue. I can put sweet-smelling potpourri in the sachet, so I always carry a beautiful scent with me! Sometimes I will include my favorite flower, Bluebell, in my potpourri. When I am not learning how to sew, I love collecting rings and beads, and all sorts of other special trinkets.
For safekeeping, I put them in the tooth pouch I made. Unless I’ve lost a tooth, of course! Then I will carry my tooth in the pouch until I get home. At home, I place my tooth under my round pillow and wait for the Tooth Fairy to come. While I wait, I lay my head on my pillow, which is covered by a magical pillowcase. Before I know it, I’ve drifted off into Pixieland where I am having the most wonderful adventures with my pixie friends!
We are playing at Pixie Pond in the crystal water and hunting for gemstones in the Pixie Forest. When I wake up, I discover the Tooth Fairy has taken my tooth and left me something beautiful to add to my collection. Today it was a sparkling gem, and last time I got a shiny black stone. My next sewing project is a hair scrunchy that we can learn how to make together!
Hi everyone, my name is Sandy!
My very favorite activity in the entire world is sewing! I spend a lot of time finding special fabrics to go in my fabric tote. I use these fabrics to create beautiful things! Before I start any of my sewing projects, I put on my sewing apron in my favorite color, yellow. It's decorated with sunflowers which are my favorite flower.
Every seamstress needs a good pair of scissors and mine are very special. They magically cut my fabric perfect every time! I also have magic pins that help me do all my pinning quickly. When I am not using my scissors and pins, I put them away for safe keeping in a scissors pouch and pincushion. I do a lot of sewing myself, but always enjoy inviting my pixie friends over for a sewing slumber party.
The first time we all made a drawstring sewing bag for our sewing tools. One night I think the fairies came to visit after we were asleep. We woke up to find golden threads all over the place. They really should clean up after they are done! Some of my pixie friends don't know how to sew, but that's okay because I'm teaching them. I have so many tricks and tips for sewing, and I would love to share them all with you!
Hi friends, I’m Tandy!
I love spending my time outside in nature. It’s no wonder my favorite color is green and my favorite plants are flowering evergreen bushes! Each day I put on a summer dress with a sash belt before going out to my garden. It is so beautiful, and I have many different kinds of flowers and vegetables. I very much enjoy surprising my friends with bouquets of flowers from my garden.
I pick many colorful flowers and put them in my garden pouch to make into bouquets. Magically, whenever I pick a flower, another will grow in its place. Because of this pixie magic, my world is always filled with blooming flowers! Often I enjoy a pixie picnic outside with friends. We all have a picnic cushion that we sit on, under the shade of the trees, while enjoying fresh fruits and vegetables.
After I am done picking flowers and tending to my garden, I don’t mind going indoors, because I keep my sewing machine inside! Along with gardening, sewing is one of my favorite activities. I am learning to make a headband accented with a lovely blooming flower. This will be perfect for holding my hair back when I am gardening. You can learn to make one, too!
Hello, my name is Zandy!
I love poetry and drawing. Often you will find me in my favorite café, Pixie Delights. They make the most marvelous tea made from dried fruits, flowers and herbs infused with leaves from the Camellia bush. I'm inspired to write while sipping a cup of rosehip berry tea. My pixie friends at the café recognize me, especially when I wear my blousy top and my poet’s beret. They always put a tiger lily in a vase on my table because they know it's my favorite flower!
For a special treat, sometimes I will have a Redbush Chai with sliced peaches. Not only is peach my favorite flavor; it’s my favorite color as well! I carry my magic drawing board and chalk holder with me wherever I go. Perfect for traveling because they simple roll up and fit under my arm. After my cup of delightful pixie tea I find a cozy bench in a quiet park. There I draw imaginary scenes with colored chalk that seem to come to life before my very eyes.
During the afternoons, I stroll through the lively streets of Pixieville, wandering through magical museums and enchanting bookshops. I carry my chic curvy clutch, that I made myself and I get so many compliments! Sewing is my favorite thing to do besides writing and drawing. It’s so much fun! We can learn to sew together!
Hi there, my name is Andy!
My favorite thing to do is go hiking! When I hit the trail, I put on my teal ball cap to shade my eyes from the sun. Teal is my very favorite color, and I love my hat! Before we start our day, I make sure to pack healthy snacks. Dried fruit, nuts, trail mix and plenty of water all go into my backpack. My pixie friends and I love to hike in the mountains, where we see all kinds of bugs and animals like spiders, possum and deer. Sometimes we even catch a glimpse of the most beautiful and enchanting animal, the Pegasus!
There are many fairy glades with my favorite flower, the snapdragon, which shimmers and glows in the sunlight. We usually carry a cloth ball with us to play catch when we take a break from the trail. I also bring my bean bags so I can practice juggling. My friends are really impressed that I can juggle four beanbags at once! Sometimes my best friend will bring his bat, and when we find a magical meadow along the trail, we’ll play a game of Pixieball.
When I’m not hiking, I really like learning to sew! My project now is a cash wallet. It's a great place to keep the money I earn from helping out my pixie friends and family. I am really excited to have something I made all by myself. I know you will enjoy learning to sew too!
