Halo, the Angel Bear

designed by Evelyn McDermand

 

Materials:

3 1/2 yards cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
88 AB white pony beads (see note)
42 AB crystal pony beads (see note)
3 black pony beads
12 silver glitter mini pony beads (for halo)
Scrap of inch iridescent ribbon

 

Special Instructions:  Begin with the first bead of the head.  Then make the halo by lacing on all 12 mini beads and going back through the large bead.  Make the ears as usual.  After making the wings, make the arms, then continue with the rest of the pattern. Take the scrap piece of ribbon and weave it through the last bead of the row consisting of 4 beads (under the nose).  Tie a bow and add a drop of glue to the knot to secure.
Note:  You can also use the white pearl or plain white beads for the body and clear or silver glitter beads for the wings.  I just happened to like the iridescent beads for this pattern.
