SKILL RATING

Cut 2 body shapes from the felt and begin joining them together by stitching round the edge in blanket stitch using the embroidery thread. Leave a small gap open, push in a little toy stuffing and them continue stitching to close up the gap. Attach the 2 buttons for eyes, with some random straight stitches for decoration and a few fly stitches on the tummy for feathers. Cut the beak from the felt and sew into position.
