Angelina Fibre Fun

Recently, when I had to get some sequins to make the lovely Lamia Earrings, I also bought some Angelina fibre. Marvellous stuff!

Here's one I made earlier:

The Angelina fibre comes in sparkling, iridescent strands that can be laid out between two sheets of baking paper and then ironed to create a fabric. You can mix colours, add flower petals etc. The only limit is your imagination.

This bowl was made by layering Angelina fibres inside a bowl, then popping another bowl inside it to secure the Angelina fibres. Next, you fill the top bowl with hot water and then pop both bowls inside a larger bowl which also needs filling with hot water. After fifteen minutes or so your Angelina bowl is ready.

This one, although I've trimmed the edges, is not quite finished yet, as I want to add some embroidery and possibly some flowers. Not sure yet.

Here are the sheets of Angelina fibre I made. The first one I made with my sister whilst she was here, the others were done last Sunday.

The sheets are tough enough to be cut out into shapes... you'll have to wait and see what I'll make with them. :-)


  1. What fascinating stuff - the possibilities are endless. Can't wait to see what you do with the sheets of it.

  2. Pretty bowl!
    I bought some angelina a few years ago now, but never got around to doing anything with it...

  3. Well, secret knit alongs are quite nice, as you get the pattern a piece at a time. It doesn't get so daunting when you do it piece by piece ^_^ And I swear in the name of Post-it's, they are every knitters best friends in chart following ;)
