Yarnia Inspired Angels: Making Wheat Harvest Angel

P1120391

Since I love playing with wheat - fashioning it into ornaments and brooms and house blessings - I just had to make a "harvest" angel using wheat straws. I have named this one Leslie and those who know her (she is my little sister) will understand!

Meet sweet and delicate "Snowflake"! She is the forth angel in the Yarnia Inspired Angels series and if you missed the others - you can find all six angels here and how to posts for the red angel, folk angel and quilted angel.

Yarnia Inspired Angels: Making the Quilted Angel

I have been holding on to every last scrap of this sparkly star fabric and using it for only very special projects! It is impossible to show, but the fabric has millions and millions of shiny silver bits embedded in the fabric which wink and sparkle constantly.

Not being a quilter nor having ever gotten the hang of free motion quilting, my efforts to create a quilted wing will probably not astound and amaze you! But the end result is working nicely and the wings sparkle at me every time I walk by!

Yarnia Inspired Angels: Making the Folk Angel.

P1120409

In my notes, I always referred to this angel as my "Folk Angel" - and she does have a kind of folk art feel about her.

I fashioned her after a memory of an angel painting I remember from my childhood in Santa Fe. But she IS wearing Diane's sock yarn and she is blue (Diane's favorite color), so I have just this minute decided to name her Diane after my sweet daughter!

Yarnia Inspired Angels: Making The Red Angel

P1120404

Let's start the Making Angels Series with Lindsey - she is, after all, my first! And some of the techniques I am sharing (like hair application for instance) will also be used on other angels as well, so it makes sense to begin with her.

Just so you know in advance, this is the longest post of the series.

I am dividing the "how-to" posts into sections so if you are only interested in say hair application, you can skip down to that part. And once they are all posted, you can mix and match and design your own angels!
