This piece has SOLD. Your purchase would be a custom order. This 10″ x 10″ felted illustration features Babcia and Dziaza’s house. These two woodland fairies possess a special knack for growing magical ingredients needed to make very exact potions. Eva and Viéve are flying across the field, in search of petals from a very special, very specific flower. The illustration is painted with wool, using nothing more than a rainbow of wool, felting needles, and a whole lot of creativity.
