This is my first attempt at making a standing angel. She is 17" tall. There are a few things I will do differently on my next one. I ordered some breast cancer charms to use on the ribbons for my next one and will trim the dress in gold metallic or silver metallic thread.

The hair was a challenge as it is braided thread and then I made curls with more thread. Don't ask me how LOL!
