Angels Divine – Crochet Clothespin Angel


This pattern is not specifically a Christmas ornament.  But, historically speaking, that is when I give her over any other occasion.  Here is one I made that I posted in my Etsy shop:

Angel Divine clothes pin doll, in Mauve and white, with stand

I decided today would be a good day to start on gifts for Christmas.  Usually, I am the last of the great procrastinators!  So, I am feeling all kinds of full-of-myself today!

The pattern can be found in this book.

My well worn copy

Here is a link to purchase it on Amazon:

Big Book Of Crochet (Leisure Arts #3850)

As well as the bedpost or nightstand, a few of my friends have their angel hanging from the rear-view in their car. I like that idea best.

 

Progress . . . I used Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread Classic 10 Purple, and some leftover white size 10 I found in my stash.  My hook is a Boye Steel Crochet hook size 6/1.80MM

Working a double crochet cluster.

finished dress!

Close up of bodice.  The most difficult part of this pattern is row 1.  Just getting started.

Crochet trim

Just finished the ‘wings’

and a tiny little halo

Spot of glue on the halo and ribbon and she is finished. Isn’t she a beauty!

I suggest using a very bright light source if you use a dark color like this purple.

Here are examples of the clothespin and stand.  I found these on Amazon as well.  (I love Amazon!)

Hope you like my new clothespin angel!  She’ll have a fabulous new home soon enough!

I finally started using my Ravelry account lately and have posted this project there.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!

TTFN!
