Blanket stitch around the edge with an embroidery thread. Attach 2 buttons on the body as shown on the pattern.

The eyes can be done with either a black bead or some embroidery thread.

Wings

Sew 2 pieces of wings together by blanket stitching them together to match the body. Do not fill. Make the second wing the same way. Sew the wings to the body as shown in the pattern.

Wire Hangup

Using some wire cut a piece 10 inches (25 cm) long. To make the hangup, twist the ends around the buttons.

Legs
