This velvet angel very simplistic is very easy to make and makes a nice gift for those you love. I used the porcelaine hands and arms and a set of purchased wings.

I also used a thread cone ( large ) for a base and covered it with fabric in white. I made an underskirt by cutting a piece of fabric the height x circumference plus 6 inches. A hem of five inches in allowed in the bottom, and the top is gathered to fit around the cone using a casing.

Velvet is cut and gathered in the same way with the addition of very special lace. Arms are made using gathered lace and the bodice is highlighted with satin and silk ribbons as is the boquet she is holding.
