Easter Chickie's

These sweet fabric chicks are not only cute for Easter,
but also for the whole season of Spring.




They would would be extra cute set on the table at each place setting for Easter
and each guest could take one home.




Here is what you will need to make your own:

scrap fabric
buttons
batting
needle
thread
scissors
lace
small mold (dish)
Spanish moss
toothpick
paper flowers
embellishments (optional)

Cut out two bird shapes - mine were done by eye with no pattern -
and two wings.
They should be small enough to fit into the dish you're using.




Sew on the wings first, then the buttons for the eyes.
Place the two bird pieces together and sew along the edge.




Leave a small opening and fill with batting then finish sewing up the bird.
As you can see, I wanted my edges to fray for a shabby look.




Make however many your heart desires :)




I used vintage molds to hold my chick's and applied lace around the top edge.




Now for the cute flowers. . .
I used a paper punch to make mine.
I punched out two flowers and sandwiched a toothpick in between with hot glue - make sense?
I then added buttons and rhinestones.








Happy little chickie's that are simply perfect for Spring :)





Have fun creating, lovely friends!
Hugs to you!

Oh, I love these little chickees, Stephanie, especially the polka dot one. What a nice way to add a little spring to your table. And your tags are gorgeous. I have a friend who makes tags also, and I have kept every single one that she sent me.

I hope that spring has arrived in your area and you are enjoying the days.

love,

Those nesting chicks are a beauty to behold, Stephanie. I'm sure anyone lucky to be gifted any of those home would be really appreciative of the love sewn into every pretty little chick.

Thanks for always visiting me over at my blog and for you lovely comments, never fails to brighten my days.

May I add that your blog feels like home too?

More grace and blessings, sister.

These are SUPER cute Stephanie!

I think I need to pull out my ol' craft box. I really think it would be good for me to get all crafty too! I wish we lived closer, we could create together!

I hope you have a lovely week!

Hugs and Grace,

Dear Stephanie,

Sylvia said...

Stephanie, I love the little chicks. I have one like them, but, I didn't make it. It was given to me by a friend.

Wanda said...

Dear Stephanie ~ Talk about precious. The chicks are just adorable and can see a touch of your love and eye for color in each one.

I'm not a crafty person, but I thrill at what you gals with that gift can do. The Easter Baskets I do for each of my adult kids and family are filled with what I do best...Kitchen things. Like Rosemary Salt, Vanilla Sugar, Watercolor Easter eggs, and home make breads and cookies. And a hand knitted dish cloth.
It's good we don't all do the same thing, right!!
Love what you do.
Sending smiles and hugs.

Denise said...

How sweet these little chicks are! You have given us very good directions for making them. Thank you!

Anne Payne said...

As always, your craft is adorable! They would brighten up any room. And I absolutely love that pink and white doily! All the doilies I have are a dark cream/beige. They belonged to my Granny.

The tags are great. I hope you don't mind that I pinned them with a link to back here. If you do, I will delete the pins.

Hope you have a blessed day!

Lexie thinks that your Easter chicks are beautiful and wants to make some when she has finished knitting her scarf - which may be some time yet, so I'll make her a couple as an Easter surprise.
