This swan is 12 inch (30 cm) long.
Use the A4 sized pattern below to cut out your fabric.
Sew both body pieces together, leaving an opening for you to fill. Turn right side out and lightly fill. Sew up opening.

Blanket stitch around the edge with either an embroidery thread.
Attach 2 buttons on the body as shown on the pattern.
The eyes can be done with either a black bead or some embroidery thread.
Sew 2 pieces of wings together by blanket stitching them together to match the body. Do not fill. Make the second wing the same way.
Sew the wings to the body as shown in the pattern.
Using some wire cut a piece 10 inches (25 cm) long. To make the hangup, twist the ends around the buttons.
To make the legs cut a piece of wire 10 inch (25 cm)and push one end through the seam and back out again in the position shown on the pattern.
Glue a bead at end of the wire to form the feet.
