Earth Angel

We have but one Earth and this sweet little Angel reminds us to do all we can to protect her.

Made from 5 plastic grocery bags and a few left over beads, Earth Angel stand just barely 4.25" from the hem of her gown to tip of her delicate halo.

The little splashes of green on her gown and wings are from the printing on the grocery bags and add a touch of visual texture and interest.

This is my first time doing 'thread crochet' with plastic grocery bags and I think she is just beautiful. She would look equally graceful sitting on a shelf or decorating a Christmas tree.

I think white bags with a touch of blue writing would look stunning, especially with blue rocailles on her halo.

The best use of plastic bags I've seen this month. Great work!

Yes, absolutely wonderful :-)
There's just something about the material... a plastic angel... something that makes me a bit unease :-D
But it's wonderful :-)
You are really good :-)
