On Fabric chicks and clay eggs
As Easter is just a few weeks away, I have been making small Easter related projects.
This year the decoration storage box gets a new addition: Easter fabric chicks. I love them especially the fabric - so cute! The children couldn't keep their hands off! I hand sewed them and quite enjoyed the process. There are other besides these two in two different fabrics but I am not really satisfied how they turned out. The reason for this is that I used sturdier fabric to make the others but after they were done I saw that I should have used softer fabric (preferably cotton). Lesson learned!
Their nest is full of tiny clay eggs I made maybe 20 years ago and I am sure there were a lot more since I aimed to make them in every possible color (as you already know that about me) but I guess they got scattered away during the years. None is of the same size and pattern (and shape for that matter); nonetheless I find them quite appealing.
