I was sent some lovely fabric to try by The Craft Cotton Co. It really is a pleasure to work with. Good quality, nice thickness of threads. Very nice to handle. I was sent the Chickie fat quarters. 5 complementary fabrics, A humorous range of quirky chickens in wellies. I love them and they remind me a little of my own Gulliver.
Inspired by the chickie chickens i researched chicken doorstops on the internet. I then looked at the designs on the fabric and designed my own chickie doorstop based on the shape of the chickens.
A simple design in two halves with a gusset to pad her out.
Stitched up, she demanded some character. I toyed with the idea of giving her wellies, and yet she may have them. But she instantly required some glam. So I found a bit of sparkle in my stash. I’m very happy with how the fabric stitched up, a real dream. And Chucky chickie is happy, (for now).
