All the shapes for this issue’s makes
Use two strands of thread, unless stated otherwise, and turn to page 101 for a stitch guide.
01 Using the templates on page 97, cut one body, one wing and one beak B piece from the black felt, and four legs, one cheek and one beak A piece from the pink felt. From the turquoise felt, cut one eye and one tail A piece. From the gold faux leather, cut one chest and one tail B piece.
02 Whipstitch the beak A and B pieces onto beak C. Turn and trim off the excess yellow felt from both ends.
03 Backstitch the gold chest piece onto the body, then whipstitch the eye piece on top.
04 Embroider feathers onto the wing using fly stitch and pink, yellow and turquoise thread. Backstitch the curved edge of the wing onto the toucan with turquoise thread. Whipstitch the beak to the body and backstitch the mouth line, as shown.
05 Embroider a circle for the eye with satin stitch and three strands of black thread. Add the light detail with white thread. Backstitch the cheek on.
06 Pin tail B on the toucan, pin tail A on top and whipstitch through the layers. Using one strand of thread and blanket stitch, sew the leg pieces together to make two legs.
07 Pin the toucan onto the black felt and cut around it to create the back piece. Cut a 1 x 5cm ( 3 / 8 x 2") tab from the faux leather and fold it over the keyring. Place the two ends of the tab and the top of the feet between the front and back of the toucan, referring to the main image for placement, and sew all the way around using blanket stitch, leaving a gap. Fill the beak and body with soft toy stuffing and sew the gap closed.
