An angel, sewn with your own hands, will become a real amulet, which will certainly bring good luck to its owner. This figurine will be a cute and symbolic gift for New Years, Christmas, Valentine's Day or any other special occasion.
Linen napkin angel
Our ancestors also made such guardian angels. In principle, there is practically no need to sew a toy, so this angel can be done with children. To make a toy, take:
- 2 square napkins with sides of 30 cm;
- thin satin ribbon.
From cotton fabric: coarse calico, chintz or linen of white or cream color, cut out two square napkins with sides of about 30 cm. Dissolve the edges of the napkins to create a fringe. Place the blanks on top of each other on the table.
Roll a ball out of the scraps of fabric and place it in the middle of the part. Collect the corners of the napkins and lift the structure. With your other hand, take the ball along with the fabric, turn it over and tie it with a white thread under it. This will make the head of an angel.
Now make the wings. Lift up the back corners of the top napkin and tie them with threads.
Also lift the front corners of the top napkin up and tie at the base. Tie the edges so that you get hands.
Cut a piece of satin ribbon 10-20 cm long. Fold it in half. Place the eyelet over the angel's head and sew a few stitches over the edge.
Angel made of felt
Felt is a very comfortable material, from which it is a pleasure to sew. To sew an angel you will need:
- felt of white, yellow and blue shades;
- threads and a needle;
- thin satin ribbon for the eyelet.
Draw a sketch of the future angel. The figurine can be the simplest: a round face with an uncomplicated hairstyle, a long blue dress and wings. Make a drawing of the figure in front and back and make a pattern for each part separately.
Attach the pattern to the felt, trace around it with a pencil and cut along the contour. Fold 2 head pieces. Insert a dress between them. Sew the bottom with small basting stitches.
Attach a hairstyle to your head and sew a piece of hair along the contour. Sew the eyes and mouth on the face. Attach a piece of wings to the back of the angel and also sew them along the cuts of the dress. Align all slices.
Make a loop so you can hang the angel. Cut a piece of satin ribbon 10-20 cm long. Fold it in half. Place the eyelet over the angel's head and sew a few stitches over the edge.
