Hand sewn baby chicks

Another Christmas present I made for Ellis. The little chicks were made from a gorgeous little bird pattern I found online. I crocheted the nest from bits of left over wool then ironed on some glittery stuff that melts when you iron it. I can't remember what it's called but it's lovely! The mummy bird was from a pattern that my friend Rachel lent me from her sewing magazine. The little egg was made by covering a plastic egg shaped container (not sure where I got this from, it was just lying around the house) with pva glue then covering it with strips of fabric. It worked great.
