First, I’ll start with the peak. Starting with it helps you determine the eye spacing on the body so the peak can fit between them.

Finish off leaving a long tail.

The resulting shape is an oval. Fold the oval on itself to create the peak, hide the magic circle yarn tail inside the folded part. Use a sewing needle to sew along the folded side to press the two sides together as per the pictures below:

Assembly

 

Using a sewing needle:

  • Attach the peak between R12 and R13. Start by attaching each corner as indicated by the pins in the pictures then attach the middle of the peak.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Attach the wings to the side of the bird on R10, R11 and R12. Let the outer part of the wing be detached as per the picture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Attach the little feet at the bottom of the bird. For a cuter effect space them apart and have them point a little outward to each side rather than just straight to the front see the following pictures for reference

 

 

 

 

 

Now you are all done! It is always a good idea to create at least two birdie friends so they can keep each other company.
