Mom's Angel


This is a simple angel pouch design that also is cute in flat peyote for pins. As a pouch I worked it in flat peyote same design on both sides. In Delicas it measures about an inch across. Fringe the bottom triangle to represent a skirt.

This pattern is a gift, it was originally posted on my Christmas pattern page on my personal website.

To work a horizontally oriented design into a pouch, you can either do it in brick stitch or you can work a flat strip in peyote, fold it, then zip up the side. To close the bottom, you would work brick off of it, which works out perfectly with this pattern since the bottom is bricked!
This is an even count design which will work up very quickly.
I have an angel policy on all my designs, which means that I don't mind if they are made up for sale. This particular design even more so, if you want to make them for friends, for family, to donate to charity auctions or just to sell for extra money for yourself, consider permission granted. If you want to use the pattern to teach a class, that's fine as well.

Because it has a very limited palette, I won't suggest colors. The colors I used were a matte light blue, gold and white ceylon. Use the colors you like best. Birthstone colors would be very bold.
You can customize it easily, using the graph as a starting point and adding in patterns, or removing the plain blue background to just make a brick stitched angel that would look pretty as an ornament or suncatcher.
The simplicity of the pattern also makes it very usable for a wide range of beads, so try it with seed beads, size 15 Delicas for earrings, or even cubes.

I designed it in memory of my mother who always told me "Every time a bell rings, an angel gets it's wings". Christmas was her favorite holiday, because it meant family and charity. She would fund raise, and baked like crazy.
