Christmas is less than 2 months away. It's past time to be doing your shopping, and decoration making. I found this lovely angel pattern to crochet and felt it would be quick enough to make that I would put it up here for those last minute crafters. These little angels would really be cute included in your Christmas cards you mail to friends and family far away. They could be hung on the tree to remind the recipients of you. I found this pattern on Craft Town and I invite you to visit this site for more wonderful ideas for crafts.
Fill your Tree with hand-made Ornaments! This Christmas Angel is a simple and easy ornament to make. Great for Gifts especially sending them through the mail for family that are a distance from you.
