Angry Birds Magnets

So I have (once again) made some magnets for a friend. I put together an Angry Birds pattern and then stitched up 2 each of the blue, red, and yellow birds. I left the black, white and green unstitched because they were so much bigger and they're just not as iconic to me. Our friends were quite tickled when they received them. The pattern is posted over in the 'Pattern Requests' section if you are interested. I hope you like :)


Forgot to mention - I just eyeballed all of these colors I think, so the colors in the pattern might not be 100% correct. If you get the pattern please be aware of this!! If you'd like please let me know and I can try to dig up the colors I actually used!

The blue bird - these are all on 14 count plastic. For reference, that is a Swiss Army Knife he is stuck to, to keep in place while I took his picture, so you can see this guy is rather small.

The red bird - the classic Angry Bird, I like how the downturned eyebrows translated.

The yellow bird - debated long and hard over the right yellow while I stood in the craft store. I am happy with the results.

DMC floss, 3 strands. Used the same for the running stitch around the edge too, only I usually doubled up in each hole around the edge to give better coverage.
