Fairy for a four-year-old

I've been playing with fabric scraps while waiting to begin a new book project. Here's a little fairy and her tree stump house I made for my cousin's four-year-old daughter, Genevieve. It's soft and tough, and will take real playing. She can fill it with her own imagination and creativity.
If you happen to be a magical moment person, you'll enjoy this: I took the little house outside to photograph it (a strangely warm day for December in Maine) and just before I picked up the camera, a red dragonfly landed oh-so-briefly on the fairy's skirt---only to dart away before I could take a picture.
