If you are looking for a simple angel doll a child could actually play with, this is definitely one to consider. This would be ideal for a baby or young child because everything is firmly attached and the features are embroider in place. It is small and chubby enough to easily fit in a childs hand. If you think the long braids might be an issue, you can crochet over the head with Double Loops to make a short curly style.

I am confused with the hair instructions too. Can you please explain them better?

Here is a you tube video that shows an example of how to do the hair. https//www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsP7Jbd7Q58

How about making these to donate to your local senior center for the holidays? I think every senior citizen should be able to have some peace and joy in their room without the risk of breaking it, you know what I mean? They can put this in their room on their bedside table. To personalize it, maybe you could even insert a nice picture of their grandchild or children in the arms of the angel, so they can feel the presence of their loved ones during the holidays! I think I just came up with a super idea,
