Row 1: Sc in first 12 ch, hdc in rem 15, ch 2, turn (27 sts)
Now - working in back loops hereafter:

Row 3: sc in next 11 sc,ch 1, skip 1 sc, hdc in next 15 hdc, ch 2, turn (27)
Rows 4 - 20: Rep rows 2 and 3.
Fold in half lengthwise, sew side seam and gather opening close. The wider part is the bottom. Insert small circle of plastic, jar lid or cardboard (this helps it to stand). Stuff up to the ch 1 spaces. Weave yarn thru ch 1 spaces and pull tight and tie off. This forms the head. Now stuff head and gather opening to close.
ARMS (Make 2)
Rnd 1: With H hook Ch 2 and 8 sc in first sc, do not join but mark the beg of each rnd.
Rnd 2 - 5: Sc in eac sc, at end of rnd 5, ch 1 turn.
Now we are working in rows:
Row 1: Sc in 4 sc, ch 1 turn
Row 2 and 3: Rep row 1, end off, stuff very lightly.
Sew single layer to body. This method of making the arms keeps the arms close to the body. (I'm lazy and use tacky glue to keep them in place.)

Weave ribbon thru first row at apron leaving a length on each side to tie in bow in back of Snow Granny. Weave ribbon in last dc row and leave a length on each side to tie in bow in back of neck.
Make eyes nose and mouth as in Snow Baby
Using about a 6 inch length of florist wire wrap wire about 2" from end once around a Q hook or something round enough for the glasses. Do it one more time next to the first circle you made. Bend the ends to form the ear piece. Now I know this is as clear as mud.
No more crocheting here. Just make a big bow (about 5" wide) from 2" wide ribbon and sew or glue to back. This will be the wings. Make a halo with beads, tiny garland or what have you. Eyes, nose and mouth are same as Snow Baby.
Tie a bow around neck or add some holly or whatever you have in your craft box. Add buttons if you wish. I gathered up some lace and tied it around her neck.
