In this class, Alison shares two hand-stitched projects—a sweet stuffed chick and a companion Easter basket. The egg-shaped chicks are a cinch to stitch and stuff, and the basket comes together with just a few rows of sewing. Whip up a batch in neutral colors and display them in an egg carton for whimsical Easter décor. Or fill the Easter baskets with pastel colored chicks and candy for a classic Easter presentation.

Kata did a great job in explaining her methods. The project looks easy and fun to make. I like how she showed a variety at the end and explained that you could enhance your chicks in whatever way you wanted. The stitches she showed were simple stitches and easy for most people.
