I decided to change it up a bit this time. I gave her plaits in her hair, "pants" under her dress and edged them with some lace that has ribbon the same as on her plaits and "ballet shoes" and I shortened the sleeve length on the bodice of her dress. I also decided to edge her wings in some silver lurex thread that I had in my stash.
I made this one out of 4 ply crochet cotton, so it's smaller than the one I made for mum which was made out of 8 ply acrylic yarn.
This one is very dainty compared to hers but I love it.
I'm not sure about the heart I made for her to hold, I think it's a bit too large and bright for her, I may have to hunt through my stash for some thinner yarn or a smaller pattern and I may give her a smile.
But overall, I'm happy with her.
Here she is.....
Update: I decided to send this sweet angel to my sister as a special gift of thanks for her help and support, while I was going through all the stress and organising of getting mum settled in the nursing home. She loves it!
I guess that gives me a good enough reason to make another for me! :)
