Step 2 :

Start by placing the ears, the heart-shaped fabric and the beak on the rectangle and sew all around the edges of the round heart, so as to fix the beak, the space for the eyes and the ears.

Once you have completed this step, sew the two rectangles together, leaving the bottom seam open. Stuff with cotton through the opening at the bottom of the owl. Place feet into the opening, then sew the opening closed with the feet securely attached in the seam.
