Chicken Finale

Finished. I took my time. I made them during world cup matches. Here is their final photoshoot before they are given away. I am very pleased. The only hard bit was the material at the bottom going round the base which really needs pleating. Not sure how to escape that. I thought as I was making three, one would end up being the one I made all the mistakes on, the one I liked least, but it didn't work out that way. I like them all equally. I will be sorry to see them go.

Chicken Part Deux

So today I start the second round of chickens. I did take pictures of protochicken but the boy erased them before I had downloaded them, then I gave him away (protochicken, not the boy). This new set uses fabcircs bought from the link in the title. Reprodepot sells vintage reproduction and retro themed fabrics, but it's in the States so every parcel gets a whoping charge added to it. I have to pay £8 last time in customs and handling. Not sure how to get round this. Maybe just make sure you order laods to make it worth your while. The materials I got were great. Then I just matched the colours with some swatches of plain colours I got from Strawberry fayre. You just fill in a form, stick on your samples and they post you the colours. the swatch has every colour you could thnk of so it's easy.
