The Steps for How to Make the Easy Angel Crafts: Felt Triangle Angel:

Print the Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel pattern.

Cut out each of the pattern pieces.

Cut two of the triangle shape and one of the semi-circular shape out of the felt.

I made this angel using cranapple felt for the body and antique white for the wings.

Cut one of the small circle from the fabric scrap.

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 1 print pattern and cut out shapes

Cut the ribbon longer than the length of the triangle shape by at least 1/2 inch on both ends.

Pin the ribbon down the center front of one of the triangles.

To find the center, fold the triangle in half lengthwise. 

Sew along each side of the ribbon to hold it in place. Use simple and fast running stitches. (Our free e-book of How to Sew Stitches helps with basic stitches.)

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 2 pin and sew ribbon to center front

Pin the two triangles and the semi-circular shape together.

Match the center of the semi-circle to the center top of the triangle.

Tuck the ends of the ribbon between the two triangles and pin.

Sew around the triangle shape with a 1/8 to 1/4 inch seam using easy and fast running stitches. 

Start the stitches along the bottom edge 1 1/2 inches from one corner.

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 3 pin felt together with wings

Sew the sides, top and part of the bottom edge.

Stop to add the fiberfill. (This is optional. The triangle angel would look great without the fiberfill.) 

Don't push the fiberfill into the top of the triangle.

Adjust the fiberfill across the bottom as you finish sewing the bottom edge.

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 4 sew edges together and stop to stuff

Begin sewing around the small circle with running stitches.

Use two strands of thread to guard against breakage when you pull the thread ends. 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 5 sew around fabric circle

Pull the threads to form a gentle cup. 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 6 pull thread to gather circle

Add a small amount of fiberfill to the circle. (This is optional, too.) 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 7 add fiberfill

Pull the threads firmly to close the circle.

Tie the thread ends together while pulling firmly.

Cut the thread ends leaving 1 1/2 inch of thread.

Tuck the thread ends inside the yo yo. 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 8 pull and tie thread ends

The small yo yo is ready for the felt triangle angel's yarn hair. 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 9 cut and hide thread ends inside yo yo

Thread the yarn into the yarn needle.

Make a small stitch in the edge of the yo yo. 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 10 add yarn hair

Pull the yarn through leaving roughly 2 inches of yarn as hair.

Make another stitch in the same place to lock the yarn in place. 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 11 lock stitch

Cut the yarn leaving roughly 2 inches for hair.

Add the next stitch for the yarn hair close to the first in the same way.  

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 12 add next yarn

Make the yarn hair stitches around two-thirds of the yo yo. 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 13 finish adding yarn

Use hidden stitches to attach the yo yo to the top of the triangle in the front.

Match the bottom of the yarn hair stitches with the top of the wings on both sides. 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 14 attach yo yo to top of triangle

Sew the yo yo to the felt across the back. 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 15 sew across back of yo yo

Make more abundant hair by separating each of the yarn ends into their separate strands. 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 16 separate yarn strands

Use the needle and thread to add a hanging loop to the top of the felt triangle angel's head.

Sew a small stitch leaving a five inch thread tail. Sew another small stitch over the first. Pull the thread through and tie the ends together at four inches length. Trim the ends of the thread loop. 

Easy Angel Crafts Felt Triangle Angel step 17 add thread loop

The fun little felt triangle angel adds whimsy to a tree, a room, an office or wherever she hangs.
