Tube Angel Tutorial 1

1. First of all, a 13 x 70 centimeter piece of white felt was cut.

4. Place your arm template of a folded piece of felt that is slightly larger than the length of the template. Trace the template on the felt and then cut it out so when opened, it looks like this.

5. ...and fold and glue it over in half on the bottom part of the felt.

The top straight line is the “shoulder” and will later be glued underneath the angels head on the tube.

6. Cut a piece of wire that equals the entire length of the arm piece and insert it into the sleeve.

The wire is necessary so that the arms can be bent into position...

8. The 42 x 60 centimeter piece that was cut out of the sheer fabric for the arms will now be placed over the arm piece. Then glue the sheer fabric onto the arm at the shoulder area to hold it in place. Where you have placed the glue will be the area where you will also glue it to the body so the glue area will not be seen afterwards.

The added sheer fabric gives the arm an elegant look to it.
