Pocket Angel Ornament

4 Materials
30 Minutes
Have you been saving the pockets from old jeans? Here's a quick and easy Christmas project that will use up a few!

I started by cutting away the back of the pocket so all that was left was the front and the stitched edge.  Next, I gathered the pocket in an accordian fold.
I used some heavy thread and ran a stitch through all the layers a couple of times, then wrapped the thread around the outside and tied it off.
 A wood ball was glued on for the head and the outside edges were sewn together.  A piece of lace was tied around the middle and some scrapbook embellishments created a halo.  
A small fabric poinsettia was added for a little color and the angel was done.
I ran a piece of heavy thread through the top for hanging and on the tree it went!

I'd love it if you stopped by my blog for more projects. We love having visitors at the Cottage!
