Sew Christmas Angel Doll Pattern

December 14, 2011 /


I had a sudden inspiration thrill last Friday night to design a Christmas angel doll pattern for my Christmas decoration. So, I picked up my pencil & paper, start sketching my angel doll, then drafting the pattern and sew. For more other Christmas patterns, click here.

Here she is, my darling Angel Doll!!! As usual, she is here to be shared, just like other creations in Craft Passion. Hope to see you sew one soon 🙂

Christmas is just around the corner, this angel doll pattern and tutorial arrives just in time for this year-end festive season.

Three days ago, I posted a sneak preview of this angel doll on Craft Passion’s Facebook page, and she was loved immediately. I hope you already get all the materials needed to sew her. Please “Like” Craft Passion’s Facebook Page (if you haven’t followed us) to get some updates of what’s coming next in the craft’s pattern and tutorial.

Sewing this Christmas Angle Doll is pretty easy with the downloadable and printable pattern template that I have prepared for you. All you need to do is gather some fabrics, doll hair, sewing notions and paints to give the angel doll some facial expressions.

I used Chirstmas-themed fabric since I have some on hand. Otherwise, you may use Christmas colored fabrics, it will be equally festive too. As t=for the fur fabric for the wings, if you don’t have it on hand, you can always use plain white fabric.

For the hair, I use fur yarn since I don’t have doll hair available in my craft room. Just in case you do not have both, you can always use normal yarn to make doll hair. Here is the video on how to make doll hair from yarn. The process involved combing the yarns to open up the spun fibers. If you prefer your angel doll to have wavy hair, don’t use the straightener to straighten the fiber.

For other ideas, you can always adapt the Christmas Angel Doll pattern and make her into:
1. As an angle for the Christmas treetop: just change the stuffing of the skirt to a paper cone and glue it to the skirt. Or,
2. Attach a string on her head to be an ornament. Or,
3. Fill the skirt with some beads to make her stand better for table decoration. Or,
4. Enlarge the pattern to make a softie doll for your little one

Happy Sewing!

HOW TO SEW ANGEL DOLL

  1. Prepare Template:
    Download the Angel pattern in a pdf document and print it with your printer.
    Feed the letter-size paper into your printer and print the pattern without setting any scale on the printing.{the pdf download will either open in a new tab or open a small window asking you to save it as a file. If you can’t find the saved file on your computer, the default folder usually is in “/downloads”}
    {If you can’t download the pdf pattern, probably you don’t have an acrobat reader, download the latest version for free, here.}

  2. Get Materials:
    Get ready all the materials required to sew an angel.
    If you can’t find a ready-made halo, you can always wind one yourself by using gold color aluminum wire.

  3. Sew Doll Head:
    Fold the skin color fabric into halve with the right side together.
    Trace the head pattern on it.sew angel doll

    Sew along the traced line except for the bottom line. Cut out the head pattern from the fabric with 1/4″ seam allowance.
    Clip curve on the seam allowance.Sew Angel Ornament 3

    Turn the fabric right side out by using a pair of tweezers since the opening is quite small.
    Smooth out the seam.
    Press with iron so that the fabric is straight and smooth.
    Draw the facial on the head with a fine tip brush. Practice on the stash fabric before the actual work on the angel face.
    Be it a big eye timid angel, sleeping angel, caroling angel, smiling angel, give each angel a different expression to personalize their character.Sew Angel Ornament 4

    Fill the eyeball with black and add some white sports to make the eyes “sparkle”.
    Dab the cheeks with a blusher or pink stamp pad ink.
    Set it aside to let the paint dry.

    Add lace trim on the skirt hem, fold the lace end in on the seam line. Topstitch to the folded hem.Sew Angel Ornament 9

    Baste the lace to the top so it won’t get stitch-up when you sew the base at the bottom of the skirt.Sew Angel Ornament 10

    Turn the skirt right-side out from the top opening with a pair of tweezers.

    Sew then together with slip stitches.Sew Angel Ornament 14
  7. Doll Hair:

    The back part of the head is shorter, roll a smaller bunch.

  9. Angel Wings:
    Fold the white fur into half. You can use felt if you can’t find white fur.
    Trace the wing pattern in the wrong side of the fur.
    Sew along the seam line except the opening. Allow a wider opening if using fur.Sew Angel Ornament 20

    Cut wing out with 1/4″ seam allowance, clip curve.
    Turn the wing right-side-out from the opening by using tweezers.
