I just went nuts when I saw these adorable yarn angels over at Gingerbread Snowflakes. They are so wonderfully cute!
Although Pam used knitting yarn for them, you could use any uncut skeins of thread you have to make them.
The base is a heavy cardboard cone used for wrapping yarn. Pam lives in Portland, so she went into Yarnia and bought hers, but you can buy yours on-line from them.
This post tells you how to make the bodies and then let your stash and creativity take hold to make the rest.
I just love them and you can make then in all kinds of colors and textures.
Pam has also posted instruction on some of the individual angels. Here’s the red angel, the blue angel, the quilted angel, the wheat harvest angel, the littlest angel, and, my favorite, the beaded snowflake angel.
