Little Felt Easter Chicks For Meals on Wheels



I made over 50 of these little felt chicks for  Meals on Wheels little Easter treats. There are many steps to this project - I work on it sporadically. Mostly when I have workmen at the house or I am waiting for the workmen.


They say that making crafts can be beneficial to your health. Crafting can reduce your stress level. I enjoy crafting while I watch my favorite television shows.

Supply List:

Yellow felt

Orange felt

Two circle items to trace

Black pen

Scissors

Black beads

Yellow embroidery thread

Large needle




 Trace a small juice glass (about 1/1/2" inches) on to the yellow felt and carefully cut out the circles with your sharpest scissors.


For each chick you will need two yellow circles.


On the orange felt trace a quarter. For every chick you want to make - you will need one orange circle.


Draw a line down the middle of each circle. Start cutting the circles out.


Once all the orange circles are cut out - they need to be cut in half.


Each chick needs two yellow pieces - a top and bottom. On the top piece sew on a black bead for the eye and an orange wing.


When I sewed the beak on I cut the black marks off the orange piece.


On the bottom piece fold the other half of the orange circle in half and spread out a little and sew on the little beak.


Sew the top and bottom pieces together. Use a simple running stitch.  These would look cute glued on barrettes, headbands or Easter baskets. They would also be adorable made into a banner.
