Easter Craft: Hand Sewn Felt Chickens

18 Mar

Felt Chicken Finished

These chickens are part of some Easter presents for my niece and nephews.  To make them you’ll need:

  • Two white felt squares
  • Yellow felt square
  • Red felt square
  • Black felt square
  • Fabric glue
  • White embroidery thread

Felt Chicken Tools

1. Cut out two chicken bodies from your white felt; a beak, crown and two wings from your yellow felt; two eyes from the black; and the decoration from your red, I chose to use the kids’ initials.

2. Position and then glue the beak and crown on to one of the chicken bodies.

3. Glue the second body on top of the beak and crown so they are sandwiched between the two layers of white felt.

4. Position, then glue into place the eyes, wings and decorations.

5. Sew around the chicken’s body using your choice of stitch.  I used a double running stitch but a blanket stitch would work nicely too.  Leave the base of the chicken open.

6. Stuff the chicken and sew up the base.

When they were finished I bought these Easter baskets and arranged the chickens with some chocolate eggs and other treats.  They are now ‘winging’ their way over land and sea to reach the kids for Easter, when they will hopefully make for a lovely surprise.
