angry bird

I whipped up this angry bird for my little guy that will be turning 8 this week. It was all my brother's idea to make it. Since my brother has been kind enough to shovel my driveway 3 times in the last day (we got 14" of fresh snow), it was the least I could do to help him out. Sewing in exchange for shoveling??? Um, twist my arm!

My little guy loves it.

(I do, too.)

Happy Monday to you!

I have to admit that I dont know what angry bird is....but it is cute anyway!! Is it stuffed with batting or beans? (like a bean bag)

My oldest son LOVES that game! Any chance you would do a tutorial on how you made it? :)

Corrie said...

love it!!!!!!!!!!!!! hope you share with us how you made it. I only downloaded angry bird yesterday but everyone from my 4 year old to hubby were addicted in no time. Hubby spent a good portion of an hour on it and finally walked over, gave me the phone and said take it away from me before I spend all night on it!

Happy birthday to the 8-year-old! What a great day to celebrate! Your "angry" bird is so adorable - a perfect handmade gift.

I can't believe you guys got 14" of snow over the weekend - ugh! we got about 2 inches, which was plenty. I was bummed it covered up the grass that was starting to show.

Kim said...

Adorable.......I'd love to have all the child hours of time spent playing this game....plus I know quite a few adults that have the angry birds addiction!
think of the quilts we could make with all that time!!!

Well that and getting off the computer :0).
Love the new quilt too AmandaJean.....you're a clever girl :0)

Happy Sewing
