It's not a mistake. It's...um...a design feature.

My kids (4 and 7yrs) are just nuts over Angry Birds right now.  First off, credit where credit is due.  This project was inspired by one I saw at Obsessively Stitching: http://obsessivelystitching.blogspot.com/2009/01/make-it-for-you.html  I loved her project, but I made a few key changes.  First, I used a different material.  She used fleece, I just used craft felt.  It's cheaper, and if my little ones destroy it, then it cost me about 50 cents in materials and I can just make another.  It's not as stretchy, though.  Second, I didn't appliqué the pieces the way she did.  She sort of sewed extra on and then cut away the excess.  I just appliquéd pieces that I pre-cut and attached with a satin stitch.  Third, some of the sizes were adjusted.  Forth, any tiny pieces (like eyeball dots) I hot glued on, as my sewing machine would eat it.  I also did an extra zig zag edge stitch on the inside seams to give it a little extra sturdiness, since they will probably be thrown around quite a bit.

So, here we go, this year's Christmas present!  First, a couple of group photos.



And here is another shot of the big pigs.


And the baby pigs.


Red and blue birds.  And by the way, I swear the blue bird bottom is even.  I think it got squished when I was hiding them from the kids.

Same birds, different angle:


Black and yellow (all the same birds, different angles).

I love these!! Me and my boyfriend are getting a bit mad over Angry Birds too - I would totally put these on the living room shelf. Tongue My boyfriend saw them and thought it might be a good idea for me to make these so we can throw them around. Tongue

Great work - I'm sure your kids will love them!! Cheesy -x-

Great work! The angry birds are everywhere. My kids love them and I wasn't sure where they came from until my sister showed me her phone ap. I love the plushies, now your little ones can play the game in person and launch the birds everywhere.

Yeah, I can't wait to hear the boom crash "MOM!!!  He broke my pig house with his bird, and I wasn't done with it yet!  He did it on purpose!"  Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking when I make stuff.   Cheesy

Funny, I don't remember being absentminded...

I need a skein (two would be great) of Knit Picks Gloss Bare sock weight to finish a shawl.

Wonderful job! I love Angry Birds Smiley I'm sure your kids will go crazy over them. I'm on the look out for patterns to make plushies for my little girl (5 months).
