I was totally inspired by WeeWonderful’s bunny and made a little chickadee popping out of an egg. I used felt and haven’t tried the pattern with fabric.

My Little Chickadee Template

Download the pattern, print and cut out the pieces.

chick2Embellish one yellow piece for the front of the chick. You may also like to embellish one of the ‘egg shells’.  I embroidered the details. It would also be cute to use felt shapes.

chick3For the beak I sewed across the middle of the diamond, then folded and sewed across the top.

chick4Sew two wing pieces together for each wing.

chick5

Sew an egg shell piece to each of the yellow body pieces.

chick6

Pin the wings to the front of the chick.

chick7

Right sides together sew a yellow body piece to the front yellow body piece.

chick8Right sides together sew the third body piece to the side of each of the other yellow body pieces. Leave about a 3″ opening on the back seam (no wing). At the top of the chick it helps to leave the needle in the fabric, raise the presser foot, adjust the fabric, put presser foot back down and then keep sewing the seam.  I used 1/4″ seams throughout the project.

chick9Sew circle piece to the bottom making sure you catch layers. It is a bit tricky, it will fit — don’t get frustrated and don’t worry if you get a gather! Stuff the chickadee and then slip-stitch the opening closed.

chick10These would be cute softies in an Easter basket! If you want a bunny to go along with your chickadee hop on over to WeeWonderfuls!
