Angel

up until last year we had a lovely porcelain angel tree topper but the cat climbed up the tree and broke her, this year our poor kitty went to that big cat home in the sky but i've decided on a much less breakable topper since i don't like our star, i'm sewing a new angel, my aunty used to make these rag dolls so i incorporated that design as a tree topper, I used the patter for the head arms and body and stuffed it,then i'll make her hair with yellow wool then I'll use a plastic or cardboard tube to place her on the tree, everything will be covered by her dress but I still don't know about wings. here's a pic of what i've done so far.

It will be nice to have a tree-topper with a family tradition! I love angels with wool hair! They are very Christmassy to me.

We had a blown glass star which had been handed down.........until someone sat on it the year before last But, the same year, someone gave me a metal Santa. It's not in the same league as the blown glass star but it's very sturdy, looks great and is the start of a new tradition.

That's the same with your new angel and there's a bit of you in there as well which makes it very special. It also won't break if any future kitty goes exploring!!

yes well that's what I was hoping for, haven't had much work done on her lately though, she has arms now lol, I thought it might be nicer to have an original angel rather than something every other person on the street has

I think it's great you are making your own tree topper. And I am sure it will look lovely when it's all finished. Keep us posted! =)
