An embellished angel and another advent calender
Christmas time is getting closer, and I decided to try out an embellished angel yesterday. The wings and the body are basically consisting of punched white wool roving, scraps of lace and fabric and finally embellished with some beads and a vintage fabric button.
The face is hand embroidered on a rosé-coloured muslin, which was stuffed with a bit of woolen batting and then stitched on to the background. The golden fringe and metal hair are Christmas tree decoration material.
I made another advent calender, too: 24 small packages of recycled Christmas cards, tags and other ephemera for a friend of mine, who always needs a lot of greeting cards at Christmas time.
