Assembly: Sew feet to legs, then sew head arms, legs. To attach the tail poke the wire into the body where you want the tail to attach, then sew around the base of the tail. You may want to add a little extra stuffing before closing the gap completely. Attach wings at the shoulders with the big wing at the top. As with the tail, poke the wire into the body to give the wings extra support. (If youre worried about the sharp ends of the wire twist them into a small loop with some pliers) Head-spikes. Cut two of each spike from the coloured felt, using the pattern below. Using matching cotton blanket stitch around the edge of the two pieces. Insert some wire to stiffen and then sew onto the head.

Eyes Cut two ovals from the white felt and two smaller circles from the black felt. Use black cotton to attach the black felt circle to the white oval. Then use white cotton to sew the eye to the head. (The eyes can also be glued on)
