… ASSEMBLE …

When you do all the parts and edges, we recommend you always take the yarns inside and into the top hole that will be closed until the end of the assembly, that way you can knot the strands together and all the parts will be very safe.
1.- 
Place the safety eyes (without the washers) on the crochet eyes. The 12mm ones are for the big owl and the 8mm ones are for the little owl. Put the strand of the FO. of the crochet eyes outward and place the safety eyes at the internal angles and contrary to the FO. (guide yourself with the images).
2.- Sew the cheeks on the FO. of the crochet eyes.
3.- Take the body and place it facing you with the strand of the FO. to the right. With the help of the safety eyes or the crochet hook, make two holes between Rnds.8 and 9, counting from the top and leaving 6sc of distance between them (guide yourself with the images). Place the eyes in the holes and put the safety washers inside the body.
4.- Sew the contour of the crochet eyes all around them.
5.- Sew the beak between the middle of the eyes, between Rnds. 8 and 10 of the body, counting from the top.
6.- Sew the wings to the sides of the body, between Rnds.12 and 18, counting from the top. Just sew the upper half of the wing, the lower half leave it unsewn to give it movement.
7.- Embroider the V that has ahead, do it with two yarns together of 8/4 and of different colors. Do 3 V between rows 18 and 19, counting from the top, and end with 2 V between rows 21 and 22, also counting from the top (guide yourself with the images).
8.- Sew the legs at the base of the body, form a semicircle and sew them between the Rnds.1 and 4, counting from the center and forward (guide yourself with the images).
9.- Sew the upper part of the body / head, leaving the yarns of all seams hidden inside.
10.- You have finished your lovely owl … Great Job!
