I'm letting the cat out of the bag a little early this year. Our family, well most of us, are going as Angry Birds this Halloween! And I don't know if you've priced out the costumes, but, uh, they ain't cheap! So it was time for Mommy to think outside the box.
And I started with out youngest.
The yellow angry bird.
Here's what I found online.
And it would never do.
So I bought a long sleeved onsie.
And some lemon yellow Rit Dye.
I couldn't find a face online really, so I drew one.
(feel free to print it out and enlarge it as you see fit.)
I dyes the onesie and cut the face out of red, white, black, and orange felt.
I ironed some interfacing onto the wrong side of the front and appliqued the face right on that little onesie.
I also sewed on a little ribbon for the feathers and secured it with a button. I think it makes it a little more girly.
Now, to add to the adorableness, I made a tutu, using my favorite go to pattern.
I cut a ribbon, black of course since the yellow bird has black tail feathers, and tied knots with about 20 inches in between.
I cut 3 yards of yellow tulle into 6" strips that were 12" long.
popped in a movie turned on Netflix and tied and tied and tied.
And ended up with this.
Could you just die?!
Now for the cherry on top, I made a little bow.
And looky looky what I made!
Cute little tuft of feathers if I do say so myself.
Add a black headband and some black tights and we're ready to charm the pants off of anyone we meet!
Halloween here we come!!
