When my youngest told me he wanted to be an Angry Bird for Halloween, my first thought was, “Awesome! I’ll gladly spend $40 so I don’t have to make it.” They sell red and black birds. Not green ones. What did he want to be? A Green Angry Bird. You know what that means? It means a trip to JoAnn’s, lots of felt, and me pulling out the ol’ Elna sewing machine I got for my 14th birthday. (yes, that says 14… it was a while ago obviously.)
I got to work.
I taped two very large pieces of paper together and drew out a pattern using images I printed out as a visual... I was basically winging it! Daisy helped.
I drew the face as detailed as I could and then cut the pieces out to use as a pattern. I used some No Sew glue to keep everything in place.
Since I like to make things difficult I hand stich all the pieces onto the front. Talk about a mind numbing task! It was worth it though. I sewed the tail and head feathers together, stuffed them to capacity, sewed all the edges up leaving the appropriate openings and wa-la!
Go me! I made the Green Angry Bird! No idea what level it’s on but apparently it exists.
What’s it look like on? You’ll have to wait and see. :-)
