No Black Friday shopping for us. We are all still in our pajamas enjoying eachothers company and working on projects. 'Tis the season for ornament making and I've been busy cutting and stitching and stuffing. I think I will dedicate next weeks posts to all the ornaments I've put together. First in line though are these sweet little angels I made for Sarah's First Annual Ornament Swap.
Seems like I have a tradition of making dolls for at least one swap of ornaments. First there were Pixies then my red-haired angels and now these. I didn't come up with this design, Julie Collings did.
I remember when she first blogged about her book, Pretty Little Felts, but it wasn't until I picked it up at Joanns and flipped through it that I knew I had to have it. I wanted to buy directly from her, and that's exactly what I did. Here.
It was the angels in Julie's book that first drew me in (although ALL of her projects are WONDERFUL!). It was something about the glittery heads...I just loved them!! And they made me think of vintage swim caps.
Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
