Angry Birds Coffee Cozy Crochet Pattern - Red Bird, Green Mustache Pig

Sometimes the work week is just too daunting to face alone. Coffee will help, but you need someone or something to have your back. For my first free crochet pattern, I present to you the Red Angry Bird Coffee Cozy.
He just makes me happy :)  I debuted by design for the Angry Red Bird Coffee Cozy as part of a giveaway on my Facebook page, and he was so popular I wanted to make him available on a wider scale.

Assembly - use above picture to guide your placement of pieces

Cut felt pieces for ears, eyes, and nostrils. Stitch nostrils to nose and black circles to ears. Position nose near center front of the cozy, and position mustache under nose. Stitch nose and mustache into place. Using fabric glue or embroidery thread, attach eyes to face, with bottom of the dark circles under his eyes nearly even with the bottom of the nose. Using a small amount of white yarn, stitch eyebrows over eyes. If desired, slip stitch with black yarn around both the top and bottom of the cozy to give the pig an outline.
