The Peeps Have Arrived
The Easter Basket peeps, that is. I found the instructions to make these little pom-pom chicks in Martha Stewart's Living Magazine and made the first ones in 2007 as I recovered from a badly broken ankle. Here is this year's edition. You can find the instructions on Martha Stewart.com. They are fun and the kids will love them in their Easter baskets.
The materials are very simple: a skein of yarn, glass beads for the eyes, a bit of felt for the beak, pipe cleaners for the legs, feathers, and Elmer's. I bought a pom-pom maker at Hobby Lobby.
The real peeps will be in next week. Can't wait.
