Stormy's StoryClick on the picture to see the entire angel.These are so simple and pretty. It takes about 15 minutes including ironing the zig zags
new dish towel
new kitchen dish cloth
new pot holder
1 (10 In)
piece of jute or string ribbon
1Start by accordion folding the dish towel* and dish cloth* and folding the towel in half then add the dish cloth still accordion folded over the towel and pinch an 2 inch piece and tie a piece of jute there this makes the head. from the back secure the big fanned pot holder in as wings and tie well adding a loop so it an be hung up or added to a present easily.
Make a small card for your to and from inside. on the outside of the card write "Kitchen angel" You can name each one if you wish. I like them best colored or themed but have seen mix matched ones come out beautiful as well. This is an easy afternoon project.
2*Note: The zig zags stay better and look crisper if you iron them in place.
3Some informational sites on making these:
This one the how to is wonderful but their pleats are rounded. still the colors are wonderful. Her arms are different and I think better as you can put something in her hands that way.
