We love Spring crafts, because they celebrate the brightest and sweetest of the season. From fresh grass to cuddly soft chicks, Spring is full of things that remind us to sit back and smile. If you’re searching for a super cute Spring craft, pull out your felt stash and follow along this simple tutorial by Kata Golda for egg-round chicks that you’ll finish in a flash, just in time if you’re crafting for Easter!
It can be hard to find gifts for Easter other than candy, but if you have the simplest hand sewing skills, you have just the tools to take this Spring gift season to the next level. This project is perfect if you’re looking for an alternative to the standard eggs in baskets, which we often feel obligated to fill with sweets. Give them a sweet that won’t give a toothache, and they’ll have a new soft toy to enjoy, too! This oh-so-cute chick makes a great gift in itself, and can also be used as a sweet addition to table decor.
Each chick uses very little felt, and the embellishments can be completed using felt scraps or embroidery floss — a great way to use up any small pieces you just can’t toss. The extra accents of wings and tails make these irresistibly cute, we just might make enough for an entire egg hunt! If you’re handy with your sewing machine’s decorative stitches, we can see some fun additions with the machine and your Coats & Clark thread, adding wing or feather textures before sewing it up by hand.
