Angry Birds Costume

Over the weekend I decided to make my son's Halloween costume. I probably should have been resting and taking it easy but I'm just not good at that. I really dislike being idle. Even when I'm watching TV, I have to knit or something. Plus, I have to admit it was a lot of fun making the costume. I think there's something great about a handmade costume, even if it's only a sheet with two holes cut out for eyes. It just brings me a lot of joy to be able to create something for my son that he likes. I think I'm going to miss these days when he gets older.

I found the angry birds costume tutorial on Twin Dragonfly Designs. Not only is there a tutorial for the red bird, but there's also a tutorial for the pig, yellow bird, black bird and blue bird! Even if you're not planning on making a costume, you should check it out. I think Heather deserves a visit simply for all the work she put into making those tutorials. She even made some patterns to print out.

One costume down, two more to go! I still need to make a fawn fairy costume for my daughter and one costume for me. I'm not sure if my costume is going to work out so I'm keeping it under wraps for now. If it works out, I promise I'll share about it.

Anyone planning on dressing up for Halloween/Harvest Festival? What are you going to be?

That's an adorable costume! =o) He looks so happy wearing it. I'm going to be Cat in the Hat for the school carnival and uncertain if I should be something else for church. Maybe Kurt Suzuki? =oP

Christy,

I suspect there's going to be lots of Angry Birds running around on Halloween. When I went searching for costumes, they were all sold out.

Ilike this one way better than the ones at Target. Great job!

I wish I was one of those 'fun' adults who dress up, but I can't seem to get into it. I briefly thought of wearing a cape and being 'super mom'. But prob won't. lol
