Some of these designs are available as singles in our $1.39 Shop.

I couldn’t resist digitizing these colorful angels. Usually we see angels in all white and these would be beautiful all white too. But I’m such a color girl I love seeing them in colors as well, especially pastel colors.

I know some people like outlines and some don’t. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. In this case I like the outlines. So to please everyone I left the outlines to sew last. I padded the satin stitches so they stand up off the fabric better.  For best results use very fine bobbin thread.

The picture above is the angel without outlines.

I use light gray thread for the outlines. The color gray blends with most colors. It’s the color I choose for sewing if I don’t have a close match to the fabric. Darker fabrics take darker gray thread while lighter fabrics take a lighter gray thread. I used light gray for the outlines in these designs. 

These designs fit the 5×7 hoop

Notions

These are the notions I used to sew the designs

  • Background fabric – I use dark blue with stars
  • Pellon ShirTailor – 1 layer 
  • Soft medium weight cut away stabilizer
  • Madeira Rayon embroidery threads – colors of choice
  • Wonderfil #80 prewound bobbins
  • Organ size 12 top stitch needle

YES! I WANT Angel Colors
