Finishing the Crochet Owl

After finish crocheting all the owl parts it is time to assemble them. Since the body and head are already finished and closed you start sewing on the eyes.

Eyes: Both sides of the owl body should look very similar why it is up to you to decide what will be the front and what will be the backside of the body. Start sewing on the eyes approximately 2 stitch rows under the “head feathers” (the closed head part). Use the pictures as guidance for a good position.

Beak: First press the beak together that the thread will be most right of the beak. Now sew on the upper part of the beak between the eyes. It should be enough to sew on only one part of the beak to the body. Again, use the pictures as guidance to position the beak correctly.

Feet: Take a yellow thread and simply knot the feet to the bottom of the owl body. Use the pictures as guidance to position the feet correctly.

Wings: Finally sew on the wings to the body. Sew the wings left and right of the body just near the eyes. Sew the wings to the body with the last 5 crocheted stitches on the wings. Doing so let you move the wings open or close. Use the pictures as guidance to position the owl wings correctly.

Done is your own Amigurumi crochet owl, cozy and care-free!
