Free Pattern: Little Stuffed Chickies

One of my favorite designs are these little chickies from 2014. People have had a lot of fun making their own creations from this pattern. You can see some of them in this article I did to feature them.

They also have a big momma chick that was designed to hold the babies. She can be made our of furry yarn and is cute out of regular yarn too.

Momma Chick Pattern: The big chick is currently available in the pattern pack in my shop, but will soon be here on my blog too.
