Sew your own Snow Angel
Create your own Snow Angel with Craft Cotton Glitter fat quarters, perfect for Christmas.
You will need
1 Set of Glitter FQ’s by Craft Cotton Company
Wool Felt (for hair)
Tip: Do not iron the right side of the glitter fabric with too hot an iron!
Create a doll body template from card.
Cut 2 x Head and Body, 4 x Legs, 4 x Arms from the Calico
Sew round the head & body but leave a gap in the bottom to turn out and stuff.
Make the arms, stuff then sew the hole where you added the stuffing.
To create the shoe, sew a piece of the glitter fabric onto the bottom of the leg. Repeat for all 4 legs.
Leave the top of the legs open, using a turning out tool on these tiny parts make it easier to turn R/S out, then stuff with small amounts of toy filling at a time.
Embroider a face and use the wool felt to create a hair do.
Sew the arms onto the body at the shoulders, and tuck the legs into the bottom of the body and sew.
Make a template for the wings, copy it onto the Craf-tex then put a piece of the sparkly fabric R/S out onto the other side.
Sew around to attach the Craf-tex to the fabric then repeat for the the craf-tex showing side.
Draw around the body template adding a bit extra to allow for a seam to create the dress bodice.
Cut the length of the fat quarter at the required depth in the contrasting sparkle, sew the two short sides together to create a tube then tack around the top so as to gather the ‘waist’. Once you have joined the two sides and shoulder pieces of the bodice you can then attach the skirt.
I sewed a line straight up the centre of the wings, then attached using the line as a guide to the centre of the dress.
The last thing was to make a crown with the Craf-tex & Glitter fabric, then use tiny gems to embellish the Wings, Dress & Crown.
