Yarn Angel Doll

This is a different version of the yarn doll that has been around for years. I started making the yarn doll when a friend of mine asked if I could make about 30 of them for her sister, who's a school teacher. She wanted to give the ladies who helped her an end of the year gift. Hers were a bit different, though. They were more like a baby doll type. Over the years, I just kept playing with the doll until I came up with an angel.

For the doll's body I used off white worsted weight yarn. For her dress, I used worsted weight white yarn. I used ribbon around her wings and waist, and I used ribbon roses to match in her hair and on the bow at her waist. I like the way she turned out and wouldn't change anything about her. I hope everyone else likes her too.

    Neat! Looks great, but I wouldn't want one because I'm a boy, but I am sure that girls would love these! (Some girls. Hopefully.)

    She does very good work, I have seen her items on HGTV and know she makes her own patterns.
