This needle felted picture on real Harris Tweed is called

"Fairy Baby"

When bluebells open in bloom in May, they reveal the fairy babies that have been growing within. If you look really closely, you can see them on the first day of the petals opening up only. They have a good sleep in the sunlight and then they fly away.

This is a needle felted picture depicting a baby fairy sleeping on a bluebell stem, the bluebell flowers are felted 3d so that they stick out from the picture.
The baby wears a blueish purple pointy hat with a yellow pompom on the tip and little flowers stick to its skin here and there.
The fairy baby has colourful wings with teal, purple, orange, yellow and pink streaks.
Above the fairy baby hangs another smaller bluebell stem heavy with flowers.
The scene was needle felted onto a dusty rose coloured felt backing and then sewn onto a beautiful genuine heather and green coloured Harris Tweed background.
Then the felt picture was lined with a hand dyed and handspun purple merino yarn needle felted trim and colourful silk flowers at the corners.
The picture has been needle felted with merino wool and hand dyed and handspun silk art yarns.

The whole painting, picture and Harris Tweed background is around 15 cm high and 10 cm wide, the felt picture is 10.5 cm high and 7 cm wide and the whole is set in a light wooden frame, which is about 17 cm high and 12 cm wide. The frame can both be hung on the wall and set upon a dresser.
