They are such fun to make and are fantastic little stocking fillers.
The angel decoration stands at just under 4″ tall and is a super quick project, ideal for using up Christmas fabric remnants.
I made the angel with auburn plaits for The-Wee-Girl-Down-The-Road. She chose the fabrics so it’s full of sparkle and bling! I reckon The-Wee-Girl-Down-The-Road would always be dressed in head-to-toe sequins, if only it conformed with school uniform policy.
I love how handmade toys always end up with slightly different expressions on their faces!
Children love to get involved with choosing hair colours, matching ribbons and picking the dress fabric. My youngest daughter styled this rather funky cherub! You can further personalise the angel decorations by appliquéing on a little heart and embroidering a name upon it with a single strand of embroidery thread. Although this may work better if the recipient’s name is Jo rather than, say, Annabella-MaryLou. By adjusting the hair length and style, you can personalise them to look like your very own little cherubs, so everyone gets their own unique angel on the tree.
I make a new angel decoration each year and my children love to see the collection growing! There is always great excitement when they are unpacked from the Christmas box every December!
