Angry Bird Plush Valentine

Nothing says "I love you!" like a handmade Angry Bird plush! ;)

A few months ago, I showed my husband a tutorial I found for the red Angry Bird at the blog Obsessively Stitching. After he saw it, he wanted me to make one for I finally made him one and gave it to him today for Valentine's day.

I sew on the details differently than the tutorial. I use a zigzag stitch instead of a straight stitch and cut out the pieces before I sew them instead of after. I also decided to use black safety eyes for the pupils instead of felt.

Obsessively Stitching has patterns for the other birds too, as well as the pigs (she provides links to those tutorials on the post I linked to). I'll probably make those eventually too... since I know CJ wants them!

Oooh, he's fantastic!! I love the addition of the safety eyes; so fun!!

Did he LOVE it??

Kira said...

He does love it! He can't decide whether to take it to work for his desk or to leave it on his home office desk! Thanks so much for the tutorial! I've never sewn a ball-like plush before. I'm glad to have a base pattern to design other round plushes in the future!
