What would the people around you look like if they were amigurumi, with certain features exaggerated to convey their personalities? This crochet fairy was inspired by Brenda’s sister Lisa, with kind eyes and a persistent smile.
Unlike most fairies, Lisa Loo doesn’t life in the magical forest; she much prefers the comfort of living in your backyard. She likes living near humans because she finds them to be an endless source of entertainment. With her kind eyes and persistent smile, this mischievous fairy dreams up new sports from moment to moment. You know sometimes when you hear the dog barking randomly in the backyard and you head out to save a squirrel, but when you go out, there’s no squirrel to be found? That’s Lisa Loo, hard at play. Her favorite pastime of all is stealing one sock at a time from your dirty-laundry pile.
