Angel finished

I finished my angel finally. I have named her Noel. I used silk for her underskirt and the bodice and silk organza with mirror work and embroidary for her over skirt. I then beaded her with pearls. The lace is handmade lace which I got from India and then I beaded that. For the wings I used the super dooper stabilizer that sticks to fabric. No basting or ironing on required for this and then it washes off. It is cool stuff especially for embriodary. I did some machine embroidary on the wings and beaded it with pearls. I didn't put any embellisments on her hair even though I did make provisions to put it there. I thought it might go over the top a bit. However I might see if crystal beads will look ok or not at a later date. Thank you so much Jacque for this wonderful class

  18. A friend that is in the fiber arts group showed me your art dolls. they are great. I love them. I have a question. I see you are from India. I have been looking for some fabric I have seen in Indian clothing. It has embrodery and small mirrors all over it. Comes in a lot of different colors. I can't find any. Is there a name for this type fabric? I have googled mirrored fabric and Indian fabric and can not find what I am looking for. Do you know what I am refering to? Any ideas where to find embrodered-mirrored fabric? email me at jwtolar@comcast.net please

  21. Shashi, your angel is absolutely breathtaking! I would love to see her in person to see all the embellishments close up. As lovely as she is in photos, I am sure she is more gorgeous in person. I know Jacque must be so proud of the work you did with her pattern.
