Face Cloth Chick

Face Cloth Chick

- face cloth
- narrow ribbon(s)
- 2 googly eyes
- small piece of yellow felt
- needle and thread to match the face cloth and/or hot glue gun
1) Take a face cloth and lay it out flat.
2 Fold the face cloth in half diagonally.
3) Tightly roll the face cloth triangle into a tube, starting with the upper right-hand corner so that you end up with the long fold at the end of the roll.
4) Stitch or glue the long folded edge of the face cloth down to the roll so that it will stay roll-shaped even when you're not holding it.
5) Fold the tube in half.
6) Fold each of the halves in half again so that your face cloth tube kind of looks like the letter "M".
7) Tie a ribbon (or ribbons) tightly around the face cloth about 2/3 of the way up, away from the "donut hole" and close to the top of the "M".
8) Tightly stitch/glue together the creases that the folds have created on the front, back, and top of the "M". At this point, you should be able to see the basic shape of the chick.
9) Tie the ribbon(s) into a bow; secure the bow with a couple of stitches or a bead of glue.
10) Cut a small diamond shape out of felt, fold it in half and stitch/glue it onto the same side as the bow to create a beak. Stitch/glue on a pair of googly eyes.
11) Cut out a jagged "M" shape of felt to serve as the chick's feet.
12) Sew/glue the feet to the bottom of the chick. They should provide enough of a base that the chick will stay standing up if you set it that way.

You're done!
