This angel is so versatile...
These angels were made as birthday gifts to go with the rainbow cards here,
but I can see us making these at Christmas for sure...and as Guardian Angels for bedrooms!
I was given some lovely raw sheep fleece a while ago from my lovely friend D.
Now I know what it was for...
Start by teasing a bit and tie the head with ribbon.
Leave the ends long enough for arms.
Cut wings out of felt.
I cut a heart shape but Big Seed cut 2 separate wings.
Needle-felt the wings onto the fleece.
At this point add a bit more fleece if it looks thin in parts.
As this was a birthday gift I felt I needed to put some more effort in,
so I cut some rainbow wool from Syrendell and needle-felted it onto the edge of the wings.
I also tied a bit of orange wool in a circle for a halo and needle felted that to the head.
Sew a bit of cotton through the head and wings so it hangs upright.
Taaa daaa... a rainbow angel.
