Are we there yet?

Not quite, but getting close!  I need to finish the beak on the Boomerang Bird and then I'll start on the Blue Birds.  That is my plan for the weekend.  If I can get that done, I can start sewing them on the individual blocks.  I still haven't decided if I'm going to do that by machine or by hand.  Any suggestions? 

I remade the White Egg Bird.  The original one just wasn't doing it for me. I like him much better. 

The Boomerang Bird still needs his beak sewed on but I decided to show him anyways.  I'll re-post him again when he's completely done. 

The Mighty Eagle has landed!!

It was silly of me to think I could do this project without The Boy noticing.  So I had to fess up why the Angry Birds were taking over the living room.

And he immediately requested the Mighty Eagle because, after all, "he's the best one, mom!" LOL  

I wasn't sure I was going to be successful with him, but I have to say, I think he's my favorite one so far. 

And can I just say again, how much fun it is working with felt! I love the clean lines. I've been cutting out each felt piece by hand (since I don't want to break my Cricut trying to do it that way) and then sewing them, again by hand, with a simple blanket stitch.  This is going much faster than I first anticipated. 

Happy Crafting!
