Sew Easter chick and bunny decorations: free sewing patterns

Sew Easter chick and bunny decorations: free sewing patterns - Craft ideas for Easter - Craft -

Enlarge templates to required size and cut out from oddments of fabric. Trace chick wings on to Bondaweb, iron on to reverse of fabric and cut out. Iron on to chick pieces and zigzag stitch in place. Stitch on tiny black beads for the eyes and tack a string loop to right side of top of chick. Instead of beads, you could work French knots in black thread for eyes.

With right sides facing, stitch two chick pieces together around outer edge, taking 1cm seam allowances and leaving gap for turning through. Trim seams, turn right-side out and stuff with polyester toy filling. Sew up gap.

Repeat for bunny, finishing with a small ribbon bow around its neck.

Plain fabric, wadding, Bondaweb. Polyester toy filling, ribbon and beads, John Lewis (0845 604 9049). Printed fabric, Liberty (020 7734 1234). Gingham check fabric, The Cloth House (020 7437 5155).
