What are you most proud of? I am so pleased with the way this turned out. The angel has wings and a halo made of snowflakes; and the skirt is created using a snowflake-like design. I am also very happy with the table stand I created so the angel could be used as a centerpiece, too!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you love thread crochet, this is a great project for the intermediate crocheter. Instructions are also included to make the form to stiffen the angel and to create the optional table stand. The finished height is 11-1/2" tall. The pattern is available for $3.50 and is written in U.S. terms.

Thank you! I like to use Aleene's Fabric Stiffener. I can usually find it at JoAnn. They carry it online also at joann.com.

Wow, she is beautiful! I have about 5,000...(or maybe even a million!!!) cotton doilies crocheted by my mom who was a crochet MACHINE...God bless her! I haven't found any appropriate use for them until I saw your angel! Wonderful creative work!
