    Hi everyone,

    I decided to have a quiet afternoon - and do something different - and I've wanted to try an angel project for some time now - and so today I did.

    Here she is - my first Angel.....she was a lot of fun....

    Finished size: 18" high

    The body, legs, arms and wings are made using unbleached muslin - then I used coordinated quilting prints for the skirt and pantalons.....her sweather is a felt/wool....

    The slippers were quite small to sew and embroider but they were also fun to make... they are about 2" long.

    I hope you enjoy her - just wanted to share her with all of you - now that I've got one under my belt I may make a chorus of angels :-)

    Hope you are all having a great Sunday!

    Bill

    You did a great job on that doll. I love the simplicity of her, yet she's very well made. I have a place for her in my sewing room if you don't! :lol:

    Thanks Everyone!!!
    I am thinking that I had better get to work on a miniature project for her to hold - the more I look at her the more I think she needs something....
    I have a couple of others I want to try - this one went well so another day I may give her a couple of sisters!!!! :-)

    I've made a few dolls and I know that they take a lot of time and patience. All the little details.

    You did a fabulous job!

    Now get busy and make her a quilting project!! :):):)
