How to Make an Angel for Christmas

You can keep your stars, a Christmas tree isn’t the same without an angel on the top. As crafters we know that nothing beats a handmade angel so maybe it’s time you started planning your tree top beauty? If you want to know how to make an angel for Christmas, read on …

Angels don’t come much more beautiful than Tilda angels.  There are whole range of different styles of Tilda angels to choose from including the dark haired beauties from the Homemade and Happy book right through to the whimsical angels dancing around the gingerbread house in Tilda’s Winter Ideas.




To help you create your very own angel we’ve made a video kit to hold your hand throughout every step of the process. You can download the video to watch as many times as you like whilst stitching your angel of choice. All the Tilda dolls are constructed in similar way so now matter which Tilda angel pattern or kit you have you will be able to follow the video.

If you are looking for a simpler project why not try our free knitted angel tutorial here. The pattern was designed by Clare Garland and is excerpted from, 101 Ways to Stitch Craft Create for all Occasions. Clare’s angel is wearing a pretty frock which can be made with fabric from your stash to coordinate with the colour scheme of your tree or the room furnishings.




Whatever you decide, don’t leave it to the last minute. Christmas in July lets us help you get organised so off you go! For more inspiration visit our Handmade Christmas for patterns, notions and books, and our Christmas Fabrics section for new seasonal lines.
