The body for the sparrow we crochet from bottom to top in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches (US!) and half double crochet stitches (US!). The body gets completely filled and stuffed, but not completely closed, but sewn later with the thread end and the opening to the head.
The wings for the sparrow we crochet from the top to the approach in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches (US!). The wings are not filled, but folded flat and later sewn to the body with the thread end.
The beak of the sparrow we crochet from the top to the neck in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches (US!). The beak is completely filled and later sewn to the head with the thread end.
The legs for the sparrow we crochet from the tips of the toes to the hips with single crochet stitches (US!) in spiral rounds. The legs are filled and later sewn to the body with the thread end.
Once all pieces are finished crocheting, you can sew your Amigurumi sparrow together. However, it is helpful to put the items together with pins. So you see if the positions are correct and can still easily make changes.
First, we sew the head around to the body. Both openings point to each other. The pointed side of the body is the middle of the back and the middle between the eyes sits on the front. You can follow the tutorial for sewing open parts together.
Then we sew the beak with the thread end around to the head. For this you put him around once with pins. He sits exactly in the middle between the eyes, with the upper edge sitting at a height with the upper edge of the eyes. Now you can sew the beak piece by piece. Shortly before closing the beak is filled and stuffed again. Finally, you secure the thread end inside.
Then the wings are folded flat and sewn with the thread ends with the opening to the body. They sit horizontally around the 27th round and have 14 stitches distance on the front. When the wings are sewn shut, the thread ends are secured inside the body.
Now we sew the legs with the flat-folded opening to the bottom of the body. For this we use the thread ends and secure them later in the inside of the legs. The legs sit around the 9th round and have 4th stitches distance in the middle.
