...looking slightly dimwitted, as he should!
I confess this tutorial may be ever-so-slightly sketchy, which is not my favorite way to do things. But. At least I can get this posted with (hopefully) enough time for you to make one before Christmas -- and with enough time left over for ME to work on my other Christmas items!!
What you need:
small amounts of the following:
~ green fleece
~ slightly lighter green fleece (for snout)
~ white fleece
~ black fleece
~ fiberfill stuffing
~ free-motion foot (optional but highly recommended!)
~ pattern (click here!)
Throughout my instructions I am going to assume you've already made the original Angry Bird -- and therefore can follow along. The basic concept is the same!
STEP ONE: Cut four body pieces, two of each ear pattern, two eye pieces, and one each of the snout pieces. Applique the pupils and insides of the ears using your free-motion or regular sewing foot. Sewing from the back is very helpful, so you can see what you are doing!
Repeat for second eye.
Sew the front to the back, leaving a hole for turning and stuffing. Stuff him, sew the opening shut, and attach his eyes and snout by hand.
