Sarah from the studio has made these really sweet Liberty Christmas Angels. She’s used seasonal Liberty quilting cotton fabrics which showcase the angles cloaks beautifully.
Sarah told me about the project:
“To make the angels, I didn’t follow a pattern, I discovered them online through Pinterest and followed a link. They were very simple to make and involved both sewing and sticking! I chose quilting fabrics for these as it gave them a firmer finish than Tana. I picked traditional colours, typical of my taste, Wiltshire Shadow Forest and Wiltshire Shadow Ruby for the cloaks and lined them with Wish ( we don’t have any of this left but we do have lots of other stars fabrics). The wings and faces were made out of white on white stars. the online link suggested using felt so that’s a good alternative.”
“This year, so much of what I consider to be ‘normal’ at Christmas will be different. However, the ‘makes’ that I love have still happened and I am so pleased with the angels. I am looking forward to seeing them on our tree gently reminding me of the Christmas story, reminding me where my focus should be.”
I love these sweet decorations so much. The use of Wiltshire Shadow in traditional Christmas colours works perfectly. I especially love their rosy cheeks and halos. Have a lovely Christmas everyone – even if it is different to the one you were expecting.
