I’ve been busy making little Easter chicks for Arthur Rank Hospice in Cambridgeshire. Continue reading
These pretty eggs were quick to make. I bought some small polystyrene eggs from Hobbycraft and then raided my stash of Stylecraft yarn – I love this combination of colours. I made the egg covers up as I went along, taking inspiration from amigurumi, granny square and mandala patterns.
I also made a basket for them, giving it a bit of structure by crocheting the last row over some wire.
I hope that you have a very nice Easter weekend and that you get time to do lots of crafting.
Last year I made some Easter chick egg covers for Francis House Children’s Hospice, who sell them on with chocolate eggs inside. I sadly had to buy some creme eggs to test them, to make sure they were the right size and that the eggs wouldn’t fall out when they were lifted. Needs must.
I’m not sure they actually look like chicks. They look like they’ve got a bit of attitude.
