Unable to draft my own pattern, I set about looking for one on the web. I found the perfect pattern (cute, easy and quick) at PLANET JUNE. These are the cute acorns that inspired my CHICK-A DEES.
With my creations in full swing, I showed my husband, who questioned why the acorns had yellow caps? After adding eyes, he said that they looked like evil acorns. Undeterred, I continued and added beaks. I would have preferred to use button eyes, but given the age of my target audience, I embroidered them instead.
Given that I have been crocheting less than a month, I am happy with my first project.
