The girls went to an Angry Birds birthday party last Saturday, and I had a lot of fun making the gift for the birthday boy.
Here they are, all together. Jessie wants a full set, with the yellow, blue and egg birds, too. And now some of the other kids at the birthday party want them, too. Thanks so much to the generous and talented Nikki C., who made the three patterns I used available for free on Ravelry. I don't know her at all, and she has no idea who I am, but I so appreciate her willingness to share.
I became an Angry Birds addict this summer (a little late to the ball game, I know, but hey, I knew it would suck me in. Don't even get me started with Plants vs. Zombies...!), so I got carried away and even decorated the plain red gift bag with a free printable from the internet.
Look at the birthday boy's pinata, and his T-shirt!
The characters are all marshmallow/rice cereal treats, covered with fondant. And I absolutely, positively did not make that. An incredibly talented co-worker of the hostess created that, and her made-from-scratch carrot cake was absolutely heavenly!
