Selvage Angel: Winging It

 Today I thought I'd show a few process photos of the making of the selvage angel.  I started the wings.  Like the Tinkerbell wrapping paper I drew my template shape on? :-)
 I decided to make each wing out of two sections to add a bit more interest.  It allowed me to angle the selvages in each part.
 Because I am using brown tones and more muted colours than in my usual selvage creations, I am using just selvages with words of the same muted colour tones.
The pair.
Next up, the face.  (And of course, everything needs tweaking and shaping.  It will not be so blocky looking in the end ... or I hope not anyway.)

I have that Tinkerbell image on fabric! I was confused at first but now my world is illuminated. Here's to winging it!

This is looking really good. Love the wings, give them movement - like that.
I am not sure where this is heading, so seeing what you create is going to be fun!!! Enjoy yourself!!

Great idea to make the wings out of two pieces to add the direction/movement/interest!
