Just in time for SPRING!

I saw this project posted at ikat bag a few weeks ago and KNEW I had to make one for Kate. I also sent a link to my sewing buddy Stacy, who is also making chicks for her little ones, too!

So without further ado,, she doesn't have a name yet (but I have a feeling her name will be Baby, because that's the only word my Kate knows right now).

And look...there's eggs in the nest! Yes, the bestest most fun part of this Hen is that she actually lays eggs!

Eggs that have little bitty chicks inside! How fun is that?

So clever, I would have never thought to create a Hen that lays eggs! If you are going to purchase and download this pattern to sew up some chicks of your own, check your printer first. The pattern pieces go all the way to the very edge of a standard letter sized piece of paper. If your printer won't print all the way to the edge (like mine), print the pattern on legal sized paper. You'll have a little extra paper, but the whole pattern will be printed.

This is also what I would call an intermediate to advanced project, not really easy for a beginner to tackle without help. But, all in all, a great project that I'm glad to have made!

Soooooooo cute! And I love your photography, especially the little hatchlings looking up at their mama from their shells. :)

That little poultry family is absolutely, completely, and utterly fantastic :^)

That's fantastic. Love the little chickadees!

Not for beginners? That probably rules me out, but I might be ambitious and try it anyway. My girls would love the little chicks!
