A tree made from layers of calico and lots of cutting.

The floor was a little of a mess afterward



The angel was made out of calico stiffened with PVA

this is beautiful! Amazing job!

This must have taken a while to make, did you make a frame and layer the fabric on, gluing it into place then cutting slits?

Took one long night to make the tree then the next afternoon to make the angel. There is an cardboard frame under the calico. I folded the calico into strips of consisting of I think 8 layers then cut it, and glued it to the tree.
