Fold your piece flat. The edge should be along the increases. Remove the cotton from two q-tips and fold them in half. Insert the first q-tip horizontally along the edge of the piece to make the two external toes of the bird. Insert the second qtip in the middle to make the middle toe, and poke it through the top/back of the foot (between round 3 and 4) to go in the leg.
Use the tail of your piece to sew along the toe, to fix the q-tips in place, then sew the top and bottom edge of the piece to shut the piece.

Legs (Make Two)

You can crochet directly around the q-tip from the foot or insert it later, but it can be difficult if your magic ring is tight.

Assembly

Sew the beak to the head, approx on 4 st wide, 1 row above the white/black separation. With yellow yarn, surface crochet with ss along the orange/grey separation of the beak, on each side, then surface crochet with ss around the joint between beak and head.

To do surface crochet, insert your hook in one of the stitch, and poke it out in the stitch next to it. Make a slip knot and put it on your hook. Draw the slip knot out . Insert your hook in the stitch where you poked it out the first time and out in the stitch next to it. Yarn over and pull through stitches and the loop on your hook. Repeat. There is a better tutorial (with pictures) on 53stitches.com/picking-up-stitches, except it’s with sc instead of ss.

Sew wings to each side of the body. The bottom of the wing should follow the black/white separation on the body. I only attached the 12 front st of the wings so that I can spead them out.

Sew the feet to the legs so that the last raw of the haunch that sticks out is on the outside (one on each side). Sew the leg to the bottom of the body, a little beneath the center (where you finished the body).
