Make another 8 finger bubble and twist back into the pinch twists.

I then make a 2/3 finger spacer bubble for between the feet,
attach the other side of the space bubble to the other two pinch twists on the other leg.
Make another 8 finger twist.

Make the second 8 finger bubble and twist into the pinch twists.
Deflate and discard the rest of the orange 350 balloon.

Then onto making the perch, inflate two 260 mocha balloons and leave 2/3 fingers un-inflated.

I have made the perch separately so it was easier to take pictures but it's easier to make when
you attach the two mocha 260's straight to the pinch twist on the yellow 350.

So attach both balloons to the bottom yellow 350 pinch twist,
you then need to make two 2 finger bubbles.

Then twist them into two pinch twists.
These are needed to hold tweety correctly on the perch as he is rather heavy.

Make a 6 finger bubble followed by a 2 finger pinch twist in both 260 mocha balloons.

Then measure up so you have two 20 finger bubbles (five hands) for either side of the perch and twist
them together and lock into place.

The balloon with the less air in, push the air to the end and make a 2 finger bubble,
twist this around the top of the side of the perch twists.

Split the bubble into two and then take the centre around the top of the side of the perch twists,
on mine I ended up here with two 4 finger fold twists.

Then push the air to the end of the other 260 mocha, make a 2 finger bubble and attach around the fold twists.
This will be the handle for the perch. Adjust so it looks similar to the picture.

If you are attaching at this point the perch to Tweety it's quite difficult,
that is why I would suggest making the perch the other way, when it's attached to the yellow pinch twist first.

I added a little more white for the eyes but artwork is not my strong point.

Please post away if you do make it and any problems with the instructions then please ask away.

I struggled a bit inserting the eyes, I think I made the body a bit too big which in turn made the head loop too small. Overall a nice design and with a bit of practice I think I could do a better job.
