Angry Birds Costume Instructions!!!


I'm not sure why I didn't do this earlier, but here are the instructions for how I made the awesome Angry Birds costumes!

Here are the basics:


First, we went to JoAnn's Fabrics (or any fabric/craft store) to find the right fabric. I decided on that stretchy, fuzzy material. I can't remember what it's called, but it's vaguely like what they would make a snuggie out of. I believe I got 4 yards per costume (which is probably too much, but it was only like $4/yard). I also got 4 yards of the cheapest white muslin fabric (or you can use a sheet, which is what I did for mine) for the inside. I also grabbed a bunch of those 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of felt in the appropriate colors to make the face and some white snuggy-like fabric for the white-belly part at the bottom. OK, so I folded the fabric in half and sort of free-handed the shape of the bird and cut it out so there were 2 identical pieces (for the front and back), then I did the same thing to the muslin/sheets. After that I stitched one of the sides to one of the pieces of muslin, leaving an opening for stuffing. THEN, on the side attached to the muslin, I cut out a face whole (make it smaller than you think it should be....I traced around a cereal bowl) and stiched the fabric and the muslin together all around the face whole. I did the same thing for the arms, which are really just slits about 7 or 8 inches long. THEN I sewed the fabric/muslin side to the other piece of fabric and then STUFFED the front part with that Poly-Fil pillow stuffing material and sewed the rest of the muslin/fabric side closed. SO, the whole thing is basically a pillow on the front stiched to another piece of fabric on the back. I also stiched the face on, but you could probably use a glue gun or fabric glue if it's easier

So that's it! Email me if you need further clarification or had other questions: theclockblog@gmail.com

Thanks!!

how do you stitch the face and arm holes so you do not see the seam?

This is great! I want to make a King Pig Costume like this one but I didn't even know where to start. Do you think fleece would work for the snuggy fabric?

Would anyone be willing to make one for me-child size? And if so, what would you charge?

Thanks so Much!
My son had a great time as the "egg pooping" bird.

He even got out his plastic Easter Eggs and "pooped" them when people asked for a trick.

This is an evolutionary strategy game that pits you against alien invaders. You begin the game in the Stone Age, with just a base and some money. Select your base to view the available building options and spend your money wisely. Buy buildings that will spawn offensive units and gatherers, as well as turrets to bolster your defenses. You can upgrade your buildings so that they produce more effective units and spawn them at a faster rate.
