CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE FOR SEPTEMBER

Back to that Christmas in July Swap with Amanda.   September's Christmas challenge is a Christmas-themed doll.  I am NOT a doll maker; but, I thought I might be able to come up with something that could work.  I received a sewing project book for my birthday and found that "perfect for me" project that just might fit the bill. Then I found this wool remnant at Joann's, and a few other bits and pieces to start the process.

Here lies the poor unstuffed thing. 

After a few more embellishments, Angie the Cat Angel is born.  She is very sweet and perhaps the only stuffed doll-like creature I will ever make.  Now, I wonder if Noelle will like it?

Quilt happy,
Marilyn

Cute cat angel. It's always good to try something new. But it looks so good it seems like you have been making these things all your life.
