Remember the Copy-Cat Pansy doily that I made while at my In-laws place for a visit? Well during our visit with them again earlier this month I saw a crocheted angel that my Mother-in-Law had and decided to copy that too. I’ve been wanting to make an angel for the top of the tree and this one was just perfect for it. The left is what I came up with, and the right is the original piece.
The angel was finished by soaking it in fabric stiffener and then pinning it to a styrofoam cone for shaping and then using hot glue to attach the halo and wings.
I didn’t get the shaping of the wings quite right. I wasn’t able to finish the wings while I was there and had to work from pictures. It was hard to see exactly what needed to be done for the wings from those pictures. But it generally came out pretty good.
