Angry Birds, Mike Wazowski, and Beanies! (crochet)
The pattern for this awesome Angry Birds hat came from a youtube.com user by the name of "tjw1963". She has a video showing how to crochet it as well as links to the written pattern. I made this particular one for one of my SIL's husband.
These six were for family members. I'd asked each of them before Christmas what their 3 most favorite colors were and here we are. Now they all have their own custom colored hat! Just basic beanies. :)
I made him for one of my nieces who just turned 3 and is going through a "Monsters, Inc." phase. Unfortunately I did not write down how I made him as I went along, though I really wish I had because he isn't from a pattern- I just made him up. I do think if I made another one, I'd make his head/body bigger. But for a first try, I think he came out pretty good!
His mouth, by the way, is crocheted grey underneathe, but the teeth are cut out of felt and craft-glued on. I tried crocheting the teeth in several ways and it was just not happening....so felt it was!! What do you think of the final guy? :)
Off to work on more projects!! :) Hope everyone enjoys the pictures above and maybe get inspired to make some as well. :)
