It began on Wednesday evening, when Anjali saw a photo of an angel doll in a crafting book. I usually get crafting books out of the libray as inspirations for myself and for the girls. There is something different, especially for the girls, when you see a craft in a book, as opposed to me seeing it on a website and facilitating it.
It was also interesting that given the resources, how each kid came up with her own choice of materials to make the same angel and how the angels that were made looked similar and different as a result.
Anjali chose to paint her wooden peg doll with water colors - orange for the body, black for the hair and purple for the hairband. Sophia chose to make her angel hair with black yarn, which I helped her cut to length and which she glued.
Then I cut out some organza. This was a challenge for Anjali, because she had never sewn four layers of fabric together before. ofcourse, this being a doll, it was not so important that the stitching be even, but I think she did a great job
And they are done.
