Crocheted Angry Bird Giveaway (Amigurumi)
I have crocheted a full set of Angry Birds, I think I’m going to enter them in the State Fair of Texas. Crocheting animals and other things like this is called Amigurumi.
The State Fair isn’t until Sept/Oct — somewhere in there, so I have time. I’ve decided that I’m going to give one of these babies away just for fun. The winner gets to choose 1 Angry Bird of their choice from those shown above. I’ll send it out to you Priority Mail and you can have fun throwing it at people.
Here are each of the birds close up…
Angry Bird # 1 – the Yellow, Kind of Squared Off Angry Bird. This is the one that when you “pop” him he goes really fast all of a sudden.
Angry Bird #2, the White Angry Bird — the Egg Layer. This guy has a “pocket” in the bottom of him that allows you to kind of push the egg in, then when he is flying, you can squeeze him and he lays the “Egg Bomb”.
Next, I made the Black BOMB bird. He’s pretty cool. He’s Angry Bird #3.
Then the RED Angry Bird, AKA Angry Bird #4….
Then I made a set of the little Blue Birds. If you pick this one, you only get ONE of the blue birds, not all 3 of them. One of the Tiny Blue Birds is going to be called Angry Bird #5.
I also went ahead and made 1 Green Pig. This would be Angry Bird #6, even though it’s not a bird really.
The Contest will go for 1 week, from tonight (June 28th) until Midnight CST July 5th, 2011. Winner will be announced on July 6th. To enter, simply post a comment on my blog in response to this article stating why you think you should be the one to get to pick one of the Angry Birds or the Pig, something like “I want Angry Bird #2, and I should win just because I’m so cool” is fine,…whatever you want….any comment gets you an entry. Please also say which bird you think is the coolest, it doesn’t have to be the one you would choose, just which one you like right now the best. If you make a ton of repeat comments I won’t count all of them, just FYI. Please try to keep it to no more than 1-2 a day, and keep each original. At the end of the timeframe, I’ll see how many comments there are, then use a random number generator to pick the winner. Absolutely, it will be random. I’ll announce the winner here and email you to get your address to send you your bird. That’s it.
Oh, and this is not a private contest, so share the info with your friends. I do not expect or have to know the winner personally. Whoever is the holder of the random # post wins, period.
One thing to note — I get a lot of spam comments on this site, so, new comments have to be approved to show up. Once I have approved you, your comments will show up immediately. I will go in and approve comments a few times a day. Until then, your comment may be in a queue, please just be patient, it is there.
Update. There were 46 comments. I used the Random Number Generator at Random.Org to generate the number, and the winner is comment #15, Anne.
oh, I think I should learn how to make my own, because I want them all! heehee. I like angry bird #4 to throw at my favorite peeps!
I’ll be sending you an email and then will mail you the angry bird of your choice!
