The simple and reserved design with the long wings was named ice angel.
The design measures about 13.5 cm X 13.5 cm. It was stitched on Weddigen linen with a 13.5/cm thread count.
The wings were filled with scales (Limetrosen I). The wing ends were worked with Satin stitches.
The dress was filled with No. 453 Röserich A2 (The most beautiful Röserich Filling Patterns).
The hairstyle was designed to match the line of the wings and neck and was stitched with 2 strands of 6-ply stranded cotton.
The design is well suited for a table runner,
but I decided to use it as a decorative band for a pillow. Colours and decors of the up-to-date pillowcases emphasize the coolness of the ice angel.
I prefer decorative bands for pillows instead of complete pillowcases. The bands are easily ironed, and the pillows can be used the entire year, with or without other embroidery designs.
This special design is also part of the upcoming collection Advent Calendar 2018.
