DIY Tutorial

Now you have everything you need to get started.

Begin by cutting out your paper pattern pieces. Then trace each pattern piece with a pencil onto felt in the color of your choice.

Cut out felt chick pieces

Carefully cut out the felt pieces you traced. Small craft scissors like these work best for cutting out the small pieces.

Assemble Felt Chick Pieces

Next, use craft glue to attach the hair at the top of the baby chick’s head.

In addition, glue the small circles onto larger circles to form eyes.

Sew Front and Back

On the chick base that does not have the hair glued on, attach the eyes, beak and checks to the face with craft glue.

Sew head and body

Now stack the front body piece with the face on top of the back body piece with the hair sandwiched inside.

Prepare your needle with thread in a coordinating color, and stitch around the two pieces with a blanket stitch.

Sew felt chick closed

Do not stitch all the way around. Leave a 1″ opening for stuffing.

Stuffing felt chick

Stuff small pieces of polyester batting into the baby chick’s body until it is plump to your liking.

After stuffing, continue stitching to close.

Felt Chick and Egg

Next, stack the two egg pattern pieces on top of each other.

Stitch around the egg shape, again with a blanket stitch, leaving the zigzag top open.
