Embroidery Contest 2008

Entry # 43

This participant entered the contest with pictures of a Christmas gift she prepared for her sister.

Here is what she writes: "I absolutely love the Lace Angel design. I bought it a few years ago and have used it in many different ways to make gifts. The centerpiece is for my sister. I call it "three little angels", it has a little card saying "three little angels will come to earth to pray".

I bought the color changing lights at home depot, and placed a changing light inside each angel. I put feathers on the bottom of each dress to make them look soft and used the same feathers on the wings. I did not want to cut off the arms of the lace angel so I turned them down and incorporated them into the dress. Then I sculpted heads and hands from Premo clay. I also added little candles for them to hold. I did not want to put sleeves on them, as it would have taken away from the intricate detail of the lace of the dress.

This was truly one of the best gifts I ever gave my sister. She placed it on her table, and she sits and stares at it for hours."

This piece was made using FSL Battenberg 3D Lace Angel Ornament.
