DIY Angry Bird Backpack

When we bought my son's backpack for school, I was surprised that he wanted a plain Jane backpack.  No Spiderman. No Batman. Not even Spongebob. He chose a black, red and grey backpack.  But I was not surprised that Joshua already had something in mind for his plain Jane backpack. He wanted an Angry Bird backpack...more specific, he wanted the black bomb bird and the red angry bird.  So this was my solution to his 'simple' request.
I found Angry Bird clip art online and traced it with freezer paper.  I cut out the images and ironed them onto the flaps.  Cheri at I Am Momma-Hear Me Roar has a really good tutorial on freezer paper stenciling.
Right about this point is when I regretted the whole idea of the freezer paper.  See how I burned the nylon around the black edge of the flap...ugh! But I just carried on...the only option I had was to try to make it better.  So once I was done, I went back and painted in the burned part with fabric paint. It doesn't look that bad. And the best part is that Josh didn't notice...or at least he didn't say anything.
So, I painted the flaps with fabric paint, including the beaks.  I added googly eyes with fabric glue.  
A week later into kindergarten and the eyes are still on.
Overall, I'm happy with how it turned out, burned flap and all.
It's the perfect backpack for Buddy to wait for Joshua every day.  We NEVER leave home without Buddy...
not even on the first day of school. 
Sam's shirt tutorial.  Rose clip tutorial. Joshua's shirt tutorial
So far, Buddy has perfect attendance 
and he doesn't mind waiting in the backpack until the end of the school day. 
That is when he gets to come out of the backpack and ride the bus shot gun with his best bud, Joshua.

I learned all about the angry birds this weekend from my 6-year old cousin. I will be looking out for angry bird Halloween costume tutorials for him. I bet he would just love this!
Thanks for linking up at Freestyle Friday!

Now that is cool! I was helping my sister paint on a backpack just like that. I was afraid the iron would melt it, so we used contact paper for the stencil. Worked pretty well.

It is not my first time to visit this web page, i am browsing this site dailly and get pleasant facts from
here all the time.

Folks who use a pleasant household including a respectable cash flow will not be generally discovered about the free of charge web-sites. Once they can not purchase that will join an affiliate site in which case you need to consider exactly why of course , if this kind of man is designed for [url=]coach factory store online[/url] you. I know that I have spoken to people who tell me they cannot afford to pay to join a website for dating and they then go on to tell me they have no job, they cannot afford a phone, they cannot afford to [url=][/url] take someone out, they go to a charity shop to buy their clothes and so on. This is fine if this is your lifestyle to but for people who have a better lifestyle there is no need to get involved.A word of warning for females only. Women should beware of the men who want to rush them into meeting very quickly, they will get lots of such offers, usually from people who have a lot to hide or who are not fussy about who they spend time with. The chances are that the guy who is in a huge rush to meet you was saying the same thing to another woman an hour ago and a different one this morning. Either they are extremely [url=]coach factory purse[/url] lonely and longing for some company - in which case wonder why - or they are simply not bothered about what you are like or your personality or how compatible you are, which makes the either very stupid, married, only seeking a quick fling or desperate.
Make sure you you should get spoken that will these pertaining to several years when you meet up with and not just internet however about the mobile phone too. Be wary involving every person that claims he's certainly not acquired a normal [url=][/url] land line phone at home or is never able to take your calls straight away evenings or weekends. Likewise be suspicious if he is usually unable to meet up then and wants to meet you for just an hour or so during the day.Profiles should be honest. They have a right to know that you are divorced but they do not have a right to immediately know why and how long for. You are competing with thousands of people on the same site [url=][/url] so you have to shine out over and above the others. Do not tell lies in order to make yourself sound more successful or exciting. Pretending to be much younger or saying you own a successful business when you do not will only backfire later and watch out for the others online that do that.

You will discover a large number of web pages that offer online dating services, most are target made to agree with man or women requirements, for example dating for any more than 40s, dating with regard to lesbians, dating with regard to large [url=]coach online factory[/url] people, dating for nudists, which makes it easier and easier to make sure that you join the sites that suit your needs rather than wasting money and time on ones that do not. Some sites are totally free [url=][/url] to join but then charge you if you send or receive messages, others are completely free to join and use and you can send and receive messages without ever spending any money. Word of warning - keep your feet on the ground, some of these tailor made sites are pandering to people who fantasise, such as the ones that offer women the chance to date a good looking, young, millionaire. Millionaires do join such sites but you will find [url=]coach factory online[/url] that most of the members on such sites are the needy poor women wanting to meet them. The sites that are specifically for people wanting casual sex and for married people wanting secret liaisons are usually frequented by men and they tend to become very disappointed when they find out that most of the other members are men like themselves.
Certainly you do obtain strange men and women about these kinds of web pages nonetheless those individuals dwell in addition to flow of air in the real world very in addition to it's likely you have attained these folks only round the part once you attended any membership. Strange [url=][/url] people are not exclusive to online dating.Do not let the cost of a paid for site worry you. They are a good investment. For the price of a few drinks you could end up with a fantastic partner. A lot of the paid for sites are very good and do not cost much. Another word of warning - beware of the totally free sites. They seem like a bargain, but you often get riff raff on them and because those sites are free the people do not take it so seriously. A [url=]coach factory online store[/url] lot of them sign up and do not even bother to go back and check their messages. People who are unemployed and unemployable and who can spend all day long sitting at their computer.
