About Susan's Angel
On the first anniversary of my friend Susan's death, I wanted to post a picture in memory of my friend. I made an angel for her.
The body is cut from a single piece of fabric with a large, floral print. I wanted to make an angel in white or ivory, but couldn't find anything I really liked in my stash. And then I saw this floral. I didn't even know I had this. Someone gave it to me.
Her face has been sealed with a coat of glitter paint. The wings you see here are her third pair. The first two were too heavy so I opted for the light and airy netting with built in glitter.
Part of the background is the same gorgeous cotton that I used for my Woodland Doll and my Green Man.
This is going to end up as a wall hanging. It's not finished yet but far enough along for today's purpose. The final version will have another pair of wings and I will probably cut the background fabrics into 2 or 3 inch squares and sew them together. And perhaps I will add some text too.
