Many years’ ago, I sold finished crochet items and this was always a good seller. It was also big bang for your buck at craft shows. Unlike many crochet projects sold at craft shows, this one takes very little time and very little in expenses. It also gives people an opportunity to purchase a little something from your shop and bonus! You can attach the Angel Pin to a business card which they can have for later.
The Angel Pin makes a great quick little gift for family Christmas stockings, friends, co-workers. You can whip one of these up in 10 or 15 minutes. And, you can be creative with it. Put it inside Christmas cards or use as a hang tag decoration on gifts. Make it with teensy tiny metallic tencel and make dangle earrings. Or, make it in aran weight in several different colors to hang as a banner or streamer on a Christmas tree.
