    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.
