Lot # 2069: 12 Angels Made From Handkerchiefs - Breast Cancer
T are so many old, vintage linens and quilts out t that are just not good enough to be used as they were originally intended. Some have holes, rips, stains or are faded and worn in places. Instead of throwing them away as useless, I have cut away the bad parts and used what is good to make these angels and other crafts. And so, a piece of history, full of memories, love, and hard work, lives on for you to enjoy and pass down again to others.

This special set of angels was made from beautiful white handkerchiefs and pieces of a quilt top. They all have little venice lace appliques under their chins. They measure 10" in length (not including the hanger) and the wingspan is about 5". The wings are made from quilt blocks that have the Breast Cancer Awareness fabric. The heads and wings have been handstitched around with embroidery floss. T are venice lace appliques under their chins, and they all have bows on their heads and necks. The dresses are made from pieces of handkerchiefs T is a pink ribbon and little floral applique on the dress. These are full skirts, folded back to the center back. They all have hangers for hanging.

Included with these angels are the tags! That's the best part! These tags are the large size, stained and baked to a primmy perfection. They look like they were found in an old attic trunk or in grandpa's workshop! They title to a saying is handstamped on the fornt of the tag with old collage type stamps. The back has the words to a verse, poem, song, or saying. You will get a tag for each angel with assorted angel sayings. If you have a preference in sayings, please let me know at the end of the auction. I have hundreds of sayings for Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friends, Aunt, Grandmother, Granddaughter, Home, Wedding, Mother-in-Law, Niece, --Scripture Verses, Hymns, etc. Or, if you have something special you wrote or need something for a banquet theme, I'll do that, too. PLEASE NOTE: If you would rather have pastel pink tags for these angels instead of the stained, old looking ones, please let me know. The sayings, etc., are the same. Just leave me a note at the end of the auction!

These angels and tags make the most wonderful little gifts! Perfect for Easter, Christmas Ornaments, Mother's Day, Birthday, Graduation, Baby's Birth, etc! Can be used as card enclosures for that little extra, tie them on your packages, hang them as ornaments on your tree, add to a wreath, include them in your primitive stitchery about angels, hang them from a light or fan pull, or just let them hang from a peg! You'll find the perfect use for them, I'm sure.
