Sew-your-own Christmas Angel

Some items have been gifted

Remember your childhood Christmas tree – I bet it had an angel on the top, didn’t it? Over the years I’ve spotted more and more stars adorning the tops of our festive trees, but I love the traditional look that an angel adds when sitting at the very top of the tree. So today, here’s how you can make one for yourself, plus the lovely folk at Amazing Craft are giving away FIVE angel patterns to 5 lucky winners so read on to enter my giveaway below!I spotted this beautiful handmade angel design when it launched on the Amazing Craft website only a couple of weeks ago. I’m a regular shopper with the brand, and it’s where I get all my supplies for my teddy bear projects. The upcycled bears I made as a Christmas gift for my niece and nephew last year wouldn’t have been possible without the safety eyes, joints and easy-to-make pattern that I got from!So when I had the chance to try out their DIY Sewing Symphony Angel project, I jumped at the chance. The pattern itself is a great price at just £6.99 and allows you to customise the design, using whatever fabric pieces and length of ribbon you have to hand. Alternatively, you can buy the pattern in kit form, which contains all the fabric, embellishments, thread, yarn, trims, stuffing, felt, ribbons, labels, beads – and even needles! – you need to make the project for just £25 in total.When the sewing kit arrived in the post the first thing I was impressed with is that the kit is packaged in a pretty organza bag. None of that crunchy cellophane wrapping to throw away, and the bag can be reused. Perhaps you could give away the angel you’ve made as a gift and wrap it in the bag? Our you could use the organza bag for wrapping other Christmas presents? Or for stowing away all your sewing bits n pieces? The whole kit is £25 and you can get a 10% discount with the code hello10 or pick up a pattern to make with your own fabrics for just £6.99.Let’s just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful the design of this angel actually is! From the sparkling headband to the tiny felt shoes, every detail is exquisite. The fabrics are gorgeous and I think I should sew everything twinkly gold thread from now on!What do you think of the finished Symphony Angel on top of the Christmas tree? I love how the bow at the back allows her to be securely attached to the very top branch. I’m quite happy to have her smiling face keeping watch over the family this Christmas, and bringing plenty of festive cheer into the home.  Now, on to the exciting Christmas giveaway! Amazing Craft would love to give away 5 sewing patterns for Symphony Angel to five lucky winners so be sure to enter the competition below to be in with a chance of winning an early Christmas present!
