As I have been sewing up baby gifts I made the adorable hen and chicks pattern in Anna Maria Horner's book Handmade Beginnings. If you don't know who Anna Maria is go check out her blog. She designs amazing fabrics and patterns. I loved the choice of colors used in the book so tried to follow them as best I could with the fabric I had on hand.
This mother hen can hide 3 little chicks under each wing with the help of hook and loop.
I will say that this project was tedious and somewhat challenging due to the size of the chicks and the amount of hand sewing required to finish the openings. Not my favorite thing to do.
