Sewing Craft Idea for Easter & Spring Decorating
 
How to Make  Little Spring Chicks!
 
You Will Need:
 
 
scraps of golden fabrics
scraps of green felt for the leaves
black embroidery thread
craft stuffing
basic sewing needs
 
       
 

Let's Make the Pattern First:

Using an 8.5"X11" piece of computer paper, draw a circle pattern about the size you want your fabric spring chick to be.

Draw a swirl as shown in the photo. This will create your chick pattern.
Cut out and label your pattern. Always keep your patterns when you are done using them. You never know when you may need it again.
Fold fabric in half. Pin and cut two for each chick. (One for front and one for the back.)
(This part is optional:)

If you want the decorative flower and button on your chick cut a circle the size you want the flower to be.

Cut little "V"s to form a flower.

Cut stems from green fabric or felt. Pin the stems and flower to the pretty side of ONE chick front.
Stitch around the flower and hand sew a button on as the center of the flower.
Pin the front and back of the chick PRETTY SIDES TOGETHER. Leave a 3.5" opening where the double pins are shown in the photo.

Stitch around the chick using the pressure foot as your guide. Turn chick pretty side out and stuff with fiberfill.

For the eye you can use a sharpie, small button, or make a French knot.

If you want to make a French knot use 3 strands of black embroidery thread. Bring needle up from bottom where you want the eye to be.

Twist thread around needle three times as shown in the photo.

Place needle back down very close to the spot it came up.
This will form a French knot which is commonly used as "eyes" on craft projects.
Hand stitch the opening closed.

Cut a small diamond shape of felt to use for the chicks beak. Hand sew the beak on.

Your adorable little fabric spring chicks are ready to be put in a basket and welcome friends and family for the spring weather and Easter holiday.
