Angel with trumpet

I have been printing out Mary Lou’s pattern at 70% (a 30% reduction.) Logically all of the angels should be proportional – all 30 % smaller than the original pattern. Well… the big angel on the left with the trumpet turned out WAY t...

Two more angels

and I’m finished! Well – it’s really three because the large angel on the right is holding a baby or maybe it’s a doll – so it’s really three figures. I have the word ANGEL all prepped and ready to sew on – b...
