Leave a long tail, use it to attach the wing to the body. Leave a portion of the pipe cleaner sticking out of the side of the wing that attaches to the body of the owl, stick it into the body between the scs, this helps to keep the wing in place and makes it poseable.

Row 2: Turn, ch 1, sc2tog, sc into next st – 2 scs
Row 3: turn, ch 1, sc2tog – 1 sc

Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Assembly:wingassembly

Seam up the opening of the owl-bat body. Attach the eyes either before or after you close the body. Attach the wings with the top of the wing in the top most spike sc section. For the eyes, you can either use buttons to create pupils, puffy paint, or make another small circle of yarn- crafter’s choice. For the beak, you can draw a downward facing triangle in puffy paint or create a triangle in yarn.
