Well, I found an Easter craft that wasn’t tired and lame and best of all–didn’t frighten me. It’s first in line at the Crafty Crow site. In fact, I found quite a few really cute projects. Pretty clever dudes over there gathering up a raft of ideas so you can find them all in one place.
Here is my attempt at the pop open felt egg with the teeny tiny chick inside.
All you really need is a few felt scraps and different colors of embroidery floss. They are quite tiny so it went together fast. (I made most of this at a track meet) How tiny are they–you ask? The pattern for the birdy is the top of a spool of thread. That’s how tiny.
Sweet little pocket treasure for your Easter chicklets–that whip together in a flash.
Go there–you can do it.
Oh, and in answer to the age-old question: Which came first–the chicken or the egg?
Now you know.

Phew, that question had been bothering me for decades.
So, so cute.
That reminds me of all the Christmas ornaments you used to hand make. Those always felt so magical to me.
Super cute! I loved seeing you and Lyndi today!!!!
These are so cute I could just burst! Came back for a blog visit just a bit too late to make these for this year, but I am going to remember these for next year! This would be perfect for our felt board!!
I used your Easter Bird Nest treats as placemarkers for my family’s Easter dinner tonight. They were a hit! Thanks for sharing.
So glad you like the birdy. It came together pretty fast too. Thanks for the kind words!
