Hello......... The other day I had a bit of a crafternoon here at the Summerhouse
and made one of the Felt Chicks from 'The Big Comic relief Crafternoon magazine'.
I'm still stuck in bed feeling pretty rotten, so I wanted a quick little make to take my mind off my symptoms for a while, this was perfect as it was quite a low energy make, I gathered together some felt and thread and set too.
In no time at all I had cut out my felt chick and stitched it together, I decided to deviate from the pattern at this point by using a contrasting coloured felt for my wings.
I also decided to glue on some googly eyes instead of stitching them with black thread.
Next up came the legs and Trouble!!! yes my little chick was supposed to have little wire legs and feet, so it could stand. But alas it was not to be I think I had the wrong kind of wire as it just kept breaking. (that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it !!)
Until all I had left were legs that looked like this eek, time for plan B
A good old bit of yarn to the rescue, much safer territory for me than wire. I simply thread a couple of beads on to each leg and
my little chick was complete. I think I'm going add this little chick to my Springtime Wreath over Easter I'll sit him on the wreath with his little yarn legs dangling down.
Once I'd made my felt chick there was no stopping me it seems I'm in a Easter Chick frenzy, as I made this cute little fellow this morning using Lucy wonderful new pattern that you can find here so adorable I just could not resist when I saw them on her blog yesterday.
This cute little yarny chick was soon hopping of my hook this morning, with more to follow I'm sure.
