I had something else planned for today, but sitting here by the computer, I suddenly remembered an idea that passed through my head a few days ago, and I had to try. And I think it worked!
Decorating the Christmas table with angel wings on the chairs! - And wouldn't this just be perfect as seating cards at a girl's birthday? I know I want to do this for my girls 7th party - with names on for each girl! Perfect
Because they also fit so very well on the back.
paper for drawing your pattern
1: draw your pattern - one of the wings
place the pattern on a folded fabric - cut two
2: sew on four pieces of ribbon - I use long ones on top and short ones on the bottom - on the second one I'll try to reverse this
3: put the pieces together - right side towards right - tuck in the ribbon, sew all the way around, leaving a hole for turning and stuffing.
4: Stuff however thick you want it, top stitch the hole
5: add some texture by top stitching a pattern on the wings
I'm really happy with this- I am making one for every chair around my dinner table - and adding the names of my girls and my nieces for the Christmas dinner!
One happy angel gt her wings - happy weekend!
