I have to say my timing was very short this time, as some of my hens still looked like this on Sunday :
But let me show you my henhouse now, will you ? :)
1. Hen and Mega Hen
I totally fell in love with those colorful ladies designed by De Estraperlo. Proof is : I made two ! And it’s extremely rare for me to follow twice the same pattern (especially within the same month) ! They are absolutely perfect to use your scarp yarn (and to practise invisible color changes :p). Plus, they will make you smile as soon as you catch their crazy eyes ! :) By the way, I also made Karl Toffeln from the same designer, and I love him just as much !
Pattern: The Hen Sister by De Estraperlo (in English and Spanish)
2. Mini Hen and her basket
As I was into it, I figured I would also try this hen by a French designer I really like : Little inspiring soul. She makes really lovely things, and started to write her pattern in English too !
As I don’t know how to felt, I made crocheted eyes. Plus, I didn’t really have any embellishments to put on her Belly, so I decided to create a little basket for her to be comfy while brooding.
Pattern : Cocotte par Little inspiring Soul (in French for now)
I think I don’t need to make the introductions here, you already know these Easter superheroes, right? I made them last Easter, and of course, they came back this year to protect me against evil Easter bells again :p
By the way, on this special occasion, you can get both set as a bundle at a 25% discount price by clicking the image below :)
4. Future Hen
I found that cartoon looking pattern very funny too, but be warned there is no explanation on how to embroider the cracks whatsoever.
Pattern : Cracked Easter egg par BluerabbitLV
5. Baby chick
Of course, after having made hens and eggs, I had to make a little chick ! So, I found this pattern on a Dutch blog. I don’t speak a word of Dutch, but as it is a pretty simple design, it’s easy to figure out what to do only by looking at the numbers.
Pattern : Kuikentje in ei op pootjes par Grietjekarwietje (in Dutch :D)
In the overall pictures you might also have seen, Paul the toadstool lalylala and a pretty big fox too (probably attracted by the hens) ! I talked about them in previous articles, you can click on the link if you’d like to know them better :)
Hoping this article gave you some last minutes ideas for your Easter decoration and gifts :)
