70 Loads of Laundry Created Angel Wings

What a title huh?
Well I really did do 70 loads of laundry to get this project done.
Each time a load was washed and dried this lovely Tiffany & Co bag filled up with used dryer sheets.

I saved the sheets because I just knew I could do something with them.

It took quite some time to take 70 dryer sheets and cut em in half.
And then trim the edges and sew and gather one side.  I needed 140 of these gathered dryer sheets in all.

Once I got the dryer sheets ready I moved on to my favorite craft of them all - making rolled flowers out of fleece with a pearl hot glued in the center.

And I made lots of them.

And now on to the pattern.
I used two poster boards.
To cut an angel wing.
And then one by one I glued the gathered dryer sheets to the wings.

Almost forgot the rolled roses.

Once all the material is prepared gluing onto the wings was quick.

My my my
I just love how my Angel Wings turned out.

  9. I'm impressed!! What a project -- maybe I could accumulate the dryer sheets; but beyond that, it would be way out of my league. You are amazing. Sally

  10. Very Nice! So Creative! Thank you for linking up and sharing at One More Time

  11. Oh my gosh! Who would ever know that they were dryer sheets. I love the roses too! One of my favorite looks. I remember years ago when I was a young mother of 5 I saved all of the lint from the dryer to stuff something I made for Christmas. It worked, but I had to save dryer lint for a long time. Don't worry about quite that thrifty anymore. lol! Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
