I am not well versed in felt, but once I saw this Angry Bird plush pattern as shared by Eileen, I knew I had to give it a shot. For those of you not in the know, Angry Birds is an iphone/ipad app where you launch tiny angry birds across the screen to hit the evil pigs who stole your eggs. It’s exceedingly popular and oppressively addicting.
At my earliest convenience, I zipped over to Michael’s Craft Store (my obvious craft store of
coincidental convenience choice) and purchased some embroidery floss, felt squares, and filler.
Overall? Not too tricky. I had never made a 3-D felt thing, but the directions explain the process fairly well.
I ultimately made two, one for Jobonga + Margot and the second for Vivienne.
I had some trouble closing up the bottom and top of the first Angry Bird, but by the second I was getting the hang of it.
It was a fun project! I’m excited to report that I will now feel more confidence with future 3D plush felt crafts.
Here’s a picture of Margot enjoying the Angry Bird!
