Those chickens!

Well, here they are...


I have to admit having gotten just a touch obsessed with these lovelies after spotting them here as a tute, here as a tute, here, and here and here of course. They reminded me of one my aunt used in the 1970s, when things like this were so popular.


They are fun to make, and the ultimate approval: received "wicked" cries from each of my children when they got home. I photographed them outside our front door this morning...

I did them as small cushions, but I think I'll reopen them and shove in some rice to use them as doorstops. They really make me smile. Have a go!!!

Love your chickens and thank you for all the links.... these may be a way of thanking a friend who supplies me with so many eggs from her chickens. I like the cushion adaptation.

These are too cute :)

I purchased a pattern last year for one similar to these, which is used as a pincushion. I think the fabrics you chose make them so much cuter. Guess I'm going to have to make another one.
