Chubby Chirps are planning on sneaking into my children's Easter baskets tomorrow morning. They turned out so cute and were quick to knit. I used sock yarn so that they would be small. In fact I'd say they are Easter egg sized. I filled them with lentils (and topped them off with fiber fill) to give them some weight and help them stand on their own.
I made the polymer clay covered eggs several years ago and I just love them. A few are even made by my children. The silver and green one under the blue eyed chirp was made by my daughter from metallic clay just squashed onto the egg and smoothed (and then sanded and buffed by me). The mica in the clay gives it wonderful color shifts in the light. These are made over blown out hen eggs. Polymer Clay Daily had a post this week about some of the most beautiful clay eggs I have ever seen!
And these eggs are perfect for darning socks!
We have two soccer games this morning and then a neighborhood Easter egg hunt this afternoon. My daughter's Sunday school class is having a flash light Easter egg hunt tomorrow night. Sounds like fun!
Have a great Easter.
