Using the buttons, attach both wings evenly onto either side of the body. Aim to attach the wings to the 4th row down from the head and approximately 9 stitches across from the middle of the back.

Tip: Attach the first button and wing with one stitch then go straight through to the other side and attach the second wing and button. Repeat until buttons are securely attached. By using this method with the buttons, it allows the wings to move position.

Sew the beak onto the face with grey yarn to form an upside down triangle.

Sew eyes evenly onto face with black yarn.
