This is the third in a series of Easter baskets I have posted. A lot of the techniques I used in this basket I used in the horse and bunny baskets.
Shared in the spirit of kindness. Please pay it forward by sharing your own special talents with someone.

Chick Basket instructions
Applique the eyes. There is an alternate face included in the pattern.
Stitch around beak, trim, sew in place
Pleat the topknot and stitch across the bottom to hold in pleats
Attach topknot to top of head
Put head on another piece of felt and starting at one side of the chin , stitch around to the other side- remember to leave an opening so you can stuff the head!
This is how a trimmed head looks from the back
Cut out 1 set of wings on the fold
Lay opened wings on another piece of felt and stitch around (leave opening) , trim back even with the front . Stuff just to the line on pattern.
Cut out the feet, layer onto another piece of felt, stitch all the way around, trim.
Pull back of foot away from front and cut a slit in the BACK ONLY
Stuff feet lightly. When you glue them on the basket you will not see the slit.
Glue on the pieces
Yikes! forgot to stitch the wing shut, awww I'll just glue it.
