Instructions:

Cut 2 pieces of 51X49 threads (50X48 holes) for front and back. Stitch 1 piece of cut canvas according to the pattern. When done, using the outline pattern, add the details to the "Little Angel". For the clothes & shoes, I doubled the black thread so it would stand out more, but I only used single in the hair.

Whipstitch the stitched front piece to the unstitched back piece of canvas, using black thread throughout the body & wings. I found if you try to use yarn, it gets too "thick" and takes away from the delicate look of the angel. Do use the Tanagrine Needloft to whipstitch the hair section to the back piece.

Once completed, twist the red & green crafters wire together (you can do this as loose or as tight as per your own perference). Poke one of the twisted wire at the red dot, as shown on the outline pattern, leave about 1 1/2 inches in the front. Feed the other end through the other red dot, again leaving about 1 1/2 inches in front. Curl both ends (easiest way to do this is to wrap the wire around a pencil several times).
