Angry Birds

My husband's school had a cartoon costume themed event. I didn't really want to participate because I didn't want to spend money on costumes. He really wanted to dress up though. After asking his Sunday school class for some idea's we settled on the angry birds. The funny thing was about three different groups of people had the same idea. We were the only t-shirt ones though. I went to Joann's during coupon commotion week and bought four shirts and a few dollars worth of felt. I think for all four shirts and felt it cost around $20. Four costumes for $20 is pretty good I think. I decided on just hot gluing the felt to the shirts. I would have sewn it on, but I'm not planning on wearing it ever again. (well. ..maybe for Halloween)
 I found a few pictures of angry bird shirts online and decided on my pattern. I just placed the felt on the shirt and drew the different facial features with a marker. It was really easy. Then I cut them all out. I placed everything and then hot glued it on. I put a piece of cardboard under the first layer of the shirt, just in case the glue would go through the shirt. (they were pretty thick, I don't think it would have gone through)

 I was the pig.
 My husband was da bomb! Per his request.
 The red one was my little crazy three year old, perfect for her personality.
 The expression on the white ones face was perfect for my almost 5 year old. A little confused by the craziness around her. 
Our shirts turned out great and it was a lot of fun!
