    Smile Sewing/Quilting Angel I made more than 20 years ago....

    I am sure some of you will recognize the sewing notions fabrics from way back when...
    I made this one for my mom and when she passed away in 1999, the little angel came back to me. She has needles under her apron, thread under her dress, safety pins in one hand, a pin cushion basket in the other hand, Her wings are a heart shaped pocket for scissors and tape measure etc., and her shoes are a matched pair of mint condition antique aluminum advertising thimbles. They stopped making these kinds of thimbles in 1950 or so. I did have a pattern for her but after 20 years I have no idea where it may be and I have moved twice since then so I have given up trying to find it.

    She is so cute............. hope someday you find the pattern or someone else may have the pattern and are willing to share. I know I would love to have her...... and I am sure others are thinking the same thing.
