Glue beads, starting at bottom on the right side of wings, around edge of wings over trim row.

Finishing

Put dress unto bear by inserting legs into skirt first and then arrange over hips.  Wrap neck edge around neck and tie in back.  Trim ends.  Glue wings to back of dress with beads facing forward.  Glue a circle of beads onto head in shape of a halo.

Baby's First Christmas Guardian Angel Bear

Using baby blue or pink instead of white yarn crochet any outfit or use the wings from one and the dress from another.  When outfit is done, trim with silver beads instead of gold.  Finish as before.

Using a 1/4" ribbon approximately 4" long in the color to match yarn, print with a fine point marker, "FIRST CHRISTMAS 1994" (or the approriate year).  An optional printing might be the baby's name and the year.  Then tack the ribbon with glue over the bears right shoulder and then tack again near the bottom of the dress so that the ribbon hangs diagonally across front of bear.
