Friday Foolery #108: My Happy Angry Bird

Last week had the big splash about the plush Angry Birds that are on the horizon. Unanswered questions include whether or not a slingshot comes with the birds and if the blue one splits into three like a Russian nesting doll.

I have my own Angry Bird for Halloween though.

He is a Pidgeot, currently his favorite Pokemon character. If you look carefully in his diorama to the left what Pidgeot evolved from (Pidgeotto) is in there next to his well along with Beedrill hanging from the sky and other characters are towards the corners.

For the crafty among us, this is a modified version of the Simplicity Child Bird Costume pattern. In order to avoid disaster my mom did the vast majority of the sewing; I just picked out the fabrics, made design modifications & sewed the black and white felt eyes. They were tricky to sew with the machine through the multiple layers of fabric in the hood while avoiding snagging the craft foam feathers.

Have a happy and safe Halloween!
