Children's Crafts - French Knitted Chicks

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Children's Crafts - French Knitted Chicks from www.walkaboutcrafts.comYou will need:
3 ft (90 cm) length of knitting
Darning needle with a large eye
Extra wool (the same as you used for the knitting)
Cotton wool balls
Scissors
Scraps of felt (for eyes, beak and feet)
Sharp needle
Sewing thread

1. Thread a big darning needle onto the length of wool at one end of the cord of French knitting. Then roll up this end of the cord into a flat circle. Sew with a few small, neat stitches to hold the circle in shape.

2. Continue rolling the cord round making bigger and bigger circles on top of each other so that the cord begins to make an egg shape. Keep stitching the cord in place.

3. When you have rolled and stitched up about half the cord, start to stuff it with cotton wool balls. Then begin to make the circles smaller, to finish off the egg shape.

4. To secure the end of the wool you are sewing with, do a couple of stitches on top of each other. Push the needle through to the back, pull the wool up tight and snip it off close to the body.

5. Cut a yellow or orange diamond shape for the beak and sew in place through the middle using a sharp needle and matching thread. Cut circles of black felt for the eyes and sew them in place.

6. Cut the two feet and sew in place. To make a tuft for the head, cut a short piece of wool and sew to the top of the head with a few small stitches.
