The wings will probably curl on itself. To make it stay flat you will need to “Block” it. You do it by thoroughly wetting the wings with water, gently squeezing the excess (do not wring or twist), then pin each wing to a flat surface as indicated in the picture below until it drys. I used a yoga foam block but you can use any other surface that can be pinned. As you pin the wings, stretch them slightly to the shape you want as it helps them keep shape.

 

 

 

Assembly 

Using a sewing needle:

  • Using the remaining yarn tail, sew the ears to the top of the head. Attach one end of each ear on R4 and the other on R7.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • The yarn tail for the wings need to be sewn into the wing a bit so that the tail pops out of area highlighted with a circle below. Don’t sew it tight as you want the wing nub to remain visible for a bat wing shape.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Sew the wing into the body using the yarn tail that remains from the step above. Attach one end to R14 and the other to R10. Repeat for the other wing.
