Let me introduce you to Chic, Ken and Fluffy. These handsome chickens make great sewing companions (mine are filled with rice and a little soft stuffing – perfect for pincushions). Each small element is easy to do – appliqué, optional embroidery and hand sewing. Make one, make a dozen, add an egg or two. They are lots of fun to make and have around.
PS. I can finely answer the age old question….the egg was first!
