2011 Angry Birds Halloween Costumes

These pair decided to take matters into their own hands and make Angry Birds costumes!

As their site states, here are the basics for making this your costume for Halloween 2011.

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

  3. Love it! Making your own costumes can be a lot of fun if you have the time and are “crafty” like that. Unfortunately I am not, lol! There’s some really cool commercially available Angry Birds costumes too for those of us that are less than handy with the needle and thread. Check them out – Angry Birds Costume
