Angel Lot #582: 6 Angels Made From Old Vintage Quilts and Handkerchiefs +TAGS


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 set of angels was made from old quilts, quilt tops, and handkerchiefs. The angels measure about 9" in length (not including the hanger) and the wingspan is about 5". The wings are made from quilts or quilt tops. The heads and wings have been handstitched around with embroidery floss. T are assorted appliques under their chins, and they all have bows on their heads and necks. The dresses are made from various pieces of handkercheifs. These are full skirts, folded back to the center back. They all have hangers for hanging. The hanger could be taken off easily if you are using these angels for scrapbooking or for making cards.

The best part about these angels is that they come with tags. These are the large size tags! What makes them so special is that they look so old -- like they were found on the floor of an old, old attic! I have stained them with walnut stain, coffee, and wonderful scents, and then baked them to a primmy, old perfection. Then, I stamped the fronts with old collage type lettering. This is the title to a saying, verse, or song. On the back are the words going with this title. You will receive tags pertaining to angels unless you specify differently. I have tags for every occasion: For Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friend, Granddaughter, Grandmother,Aunt, Pator's Wife, Daughter-in-law, Sister-in-law, Mother-in-law, Scripture verses, Old hymns, inspirational sayings, etc., etc. If you have a special request, please ask!!!! If you have a poem or saying of your own or a special message, theme for a banquet or special occasion, I will do these, too. Just let me know.

These angels and tags make the most wonderful little gifts! Perfect for Valentine's Day! 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. Please check out my other auctions for more types of angels. Some are made from quilts, some from doilies.
