Easter is just around the corner, so I've been scavenging around my house (and my parents' house) for lonely felt, fabrics, buttons and other crafty supplies that need some new life. Aren't I so kind-hearted to help them out? I found this darling pattern online and decided Ben had to have this cute chicken for Easter. He's really into stuffed animals these days, especially ones that make noises he can imitate.
Because he was made mainly from my mom's great stash of fabrics, I decided this chick needed a sibling to stay at Grammy's house. Andrew isn't really interested in chickens, so he is getting something else. (I'll post my other Easter projects later.)
Oh, how I love to be crafty. Oh, how I love an easy pattern. Oh how I love handmade gifts. This is becoming a passion of mine. We had a largely handmade Christmas this past year and I have to say, it was most enjoyable. I loved sitting and coming up with things I knew my boys would love. I enjoyed having something creative to do late at night. I already have several projects up my sleeve for Christmas this year... I have to say, I'm becoming quite the "crafty chick" if I do say so myself!
