Mur-Man will be two this Sunday and his party is this Saturday (MAN—HE IS GROWING UP TOO FAST!).
So…Angry Bird mania is happening at my house. I spent the weekend in my hometown in oil-boom, ND and of course enlisted the help of my mom (Crafty G-Ma) to help out in making Angry Bird plushies!
I love crafting with my mom…but of course this was another marathon project! We started at 8:00 a.m. and didn’t wrap up until 11:30 p.m. (and I stayed up longer to finish up more details)!
|Seriously...this is the ONLY photo I took of my mom working on the birds!|
We didn't want to show our faces! Seriously though, I LOVE her sewing machine!
But it was worth it…they are adorable. I used the pattern and instructions found here.
|My nephew J actually wore this shirt to help make the birds!|
And the best part was my nephew J (who happens to be an Angry Bird fanatic) helped out, as well as my brother’s girlfriend Dena! It was GREAT!
|J all grown up...he will actually be sporting an angry bird costume to the party! |
I CAN'T WAIT!
|J and Dena (she is SUPER CRAFTY!)|
And I think the results are FABULOUS!
|BABY PIG! Mur-Man will be getting a King Pig!|
|You can't read it...but that's the birthday menu|
The best part is this project cost me NOTHING! We still had fleece left-over from Mur-Man’s superhero capes from his first birthday party and of course mom had all the rest!
More Angry Bird projects to come…I PROMISE! And of course photos from the party! I can’t wait!
