    Angel ornaments

    I paper pieced 4 angels and learned as I went along. The top left was the first and I turned it properly. To my dismay, I'd layered the other 3 this morning and discovered I'd done it wrong! I wasn't going to pick out all those seams, so they were cut off and finished raw edge. I'd asked you all about the eyes, so they are all different. My friends chose the closed eyes as their favorite. Also, I decided PPng the halo is just too fussy, so I glued on halos to the last two. The second picture is just cut outs of preprinted angel fabric... I did remember to layer them correctly. LOL

    Those are so cute. I love that they each have different expressions.

    Nice job on the paper piecing. The preprinted ones probably go a lot faster. LOL

    I enjoyed reading about your angel ornament projects. You are very creative with your ideas. I like the design changes you made when something didn't go as planned. I like the pinked edges. You are on the ball getting these lovely ornaments ready for Christmas!

    Nicely done! One of my spare rooms is dubbed the "Angel" room as it has my small angel collection in. I have lots of angels as Christmas ornaments as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Those are sweet. I like the different expressions on the angels. Great ideas for holiday decorations.

    Well done. Perhaps you should consider opening up a little craftsy shop and selling patterns!
