Today, Caleb and I made this angry birds pillow. Actually, I made the pillow and mostly he whined. I thought he’d be excited about it since he loooOOOoooves Angry Birds, and he was…until it came down to doing some work. Admittedly, the project was a little beyond the capabilities of a 4 year old…especially a four year old who doesn’t like to get glue on his hands. (Who the heck raised this kid? Not me, I was never that fastidious.)
It’s simple really. No sewing needed! Cut two large circles – one from teal and one from red jersey. Cut slits around the edges of the circles, about 3 inches long and no wider than an inch. If you don’t cut them at the same time, be sure you cut the same number of pieces! Cut the face pieces out of felt and attach them using a good quality fabric glue. Knot the fringe pieces together, teal to red, and stuff the pillow before you’ve finished tying all of the fringe together. Voilà! Angry Birds Pillow!
