I had a reality check last night when I was talking to my mom on the phone. I knew that Easter was approaching quickly, but I didn't realize that it was much earlier this year than normal...only one day after my birthday. I guess it can fall anywhere between March 22nd (my bday) and April 25th. Anyway, I actually made a little chicky before I got really sick this last week.
I found the pattern on Ravelry and it started out as a chicken, but I thought it looked cute as a chick. I used materials I had on hand, so I was thinking that it would just be a tester. It is an easy amigurumi (crochet) pattern that doesn't take much time to complete. I also made a little nest for the chick. I think these would be really fun in an Easter basket.
I also found another crochet pattern for chicks and a basket. I think the chicks kinda look like Peeps...yummy! I haven't tried the pattern yet, but they look fairly easy. The basket it quite basic and could be used for other things throughout the seasons or decor around the house.
