These are beautiful! What do you use them for? I'd like to make one, but I don't know what I would do with them. :-)


I,m going to put one on a cushion top, and them and some others I'm going to make a bedspread top. You could also make them smaller using thread and the appropiate hook to put on pillow cases or a table cloth.I'm Making a large table cloth ,one big enough for my table with all the leaves in for Christmas I'm going to use the regular large size but making the smaller ones will work also

Absolutely beautiful! Thanks so much for the pattern! My best friend collects angels, and I was wondering what else to give her for Christmas this year because I always crochet her something, and this year I bought her gift instead. She said just the other day that she couldn't wait to see what I had made her this year, and I felt bad that I bought the gift instead, so now I can make her one of these and she will just LOVE it! :c9
