Christmas clothespin angels


Christmas is almost here.

And when something as simple as a clothespin can become a Christmas angel...

...well, it must be made.


The pattern for these adorable angels is from here:



And I just love how easy these were to crochet and to keep it even simpler, I opted not to add the halo or wings.



Size 10 crochet thread & my size 7 hook -- along with clothespins (of course) and you have the makings for so many cute Christmas angel ornaments.



...oh. This?
Our son's ornaments.
Ninja style.  Or Tron style --- so he informs me.  Not exactly the darling & whimsical that I was going after...




But when I was trying to come up with the different color combinations for the frilly dresses...well, I felt as if I were designing originals for these tiny, wooden angels.

So perfect as we celebrate this season of angels proclaiming glad tidings of great JOY.

ab-so-lute-ly adorable. they can stay out all year long and make you smile, coz they don't have wings and halos...they are just pretty maids all in a row.
again...just wonderful!

So cute ! First I think they were ballerinas...and they could be... It's a pity we don't have clothespins like this here...
Have a nice week !

They are so very very cute, love them a lot and they would surely look most pretty on your Christmas tree. I have some old angels for our tree, too, but they now look a bit shabby and not in a good way, so maybe I should make them new dresses next year, what a wonderful and lovey inspiration!
With my best wishes,
