Angry Birds »
Type of item: Toy
Style: Casual, Cute
I started making them with felt but switched to fleece.
What was your inspiration?
My daughter is obsessed with Angry Birds and I didn't want to pay retail prices for the birds, they are rather expensive.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT MY PATTERN, IT BELONGS TO OBSESSIVELY STITCHING WHOM POSTED IT FOR PEOPLE TO USE FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY. I followed her tutorial and pattern to make the birds above.

These are easy to make but I suggest avoiding making them in felt. I started with felt because I didn't have fleece but they fray and bead quickly. They also collect hair and dust easily which is annoying. Use fleece! Much higher quality and they will last a lot longer. Plus, fleece is softer.
