Step 1: Sew the head to the body, add a little more stuffing to support the neck but not too much.

Step 2: Embroider the face. Check out this blog post to learn how to embroider amigurumi faces here -> https://crittercrochet.com/2021/03/12/how-to-embroider-amigurumi-faces/

Step 3: Pick up a stitch on top of the head where you want to place the antenna, chain 5 and pull tight to create a knot at the end of the chains and then cut the yarn close to the knot but not too close so it doesn’t come undone. Repeat on the other side. Weave in ends.

Step 4: Sew the arms to the body.

Step 5: Sew the wings to the middle of the top of the back.
