One author has described one of the alphabet fairies as follows: “The more mystical and sensual side of fairy-land is epitomised by the Jasmine fairy. We teamed up with amazing amigurumi designer Clare Cooper to bring this fantasy to life, and each month you’ll meet a doll that’s filled with the Flower Fairies’™ signature whimsy and charm, from the proud Holly Fairy to the sweet Blackberry Fairy. We believe that giving children the right materials, they will make and play with beautiful things that last a lifetime.

As a girl Cicely was given Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, illustrated by Rackham, in 1908 and she was also a great fan of the Peter Pan stage play. She treats the shrub solely as a bar against witches, but rowan was in fact regarded as just as effective against fairies. Because she was a frail and sickly child, needing special meals and suffering from epilepsy, Barker never had a formal school education. Biography: Cicely Mary Barker (Author, Illustrator) Cicely Mary Barker was born in Croydon, South London in 1895 and died in 1973. Perhaps because of this, one biographer has contrasted Barker’s with Margaret Tarrant’s fairies saying that the latter look “more elfin, rather than real children.Each fairy is made with the same base doll shape, so once you get the knack of making one, you’ll be able to easily make them all.

Since the publication of Cicely Mary Barker's first book in 1923, the Flower Fairies have been ethereal companions to readers around the world. Fellow artist Margaret Tarrant (see earlier) was another significant influence- the two were friends and may have encouraged and inspired each other- to the extent that Barker depicted Tarrant as the Apple Blossom fairy in her Flower Fairy Alphabet. They bear only tenuous links to the faeries of British tradition, but over the last century they have nevertheless been inspirational and meaningful enough for people to effectively create their own tradition. Measuring A4, the calendar opens up to A3 size, plus, it's made from FSC materials, so you can feel good about using a product that's eco-friendly. She joined Croydon Art Society in 1908 and in 1911, aged 16, won second prize in a poster competition held by the group.Originally accompanied by a poem or verse dedicated to the individual Flower Fairy the charming characters and detailed artwork have also been translated into fiction for young readers as well as the New York Times bestselling Fairyopolis series. Perhaps Barker didn’t want to mention anything which impinged on the childhood innocence and playfulness of her vision of fairy-land. We bring that to life here at Conscious Craft by offering you the best natural toys and craft materials we can find. The verses that accompanied the watercolours in Barker’s eight books portray a highly conventional fairy-land.
