    Last, but not Least: The Stuffing
    Fill firmly with uncooked white rice and stitch closed. The addition of a bay leaf for bug prevention has been suggested. It couldn’t hurt and she should smell good. Crushed walnut shells are another good pincushion filling but they tend leave a brown “staining” around the opening if you don’t take a lot of care when filling. I love the weight & feeling of the walnut shells. Do not buy these from a sewing supply, there are way overpriced. Buy at a pet or feed store. Sure, you’ll probably have to buy a 25 lb. bag like I did, but sharing it with your guild friends makes you very popular.
    I hope you’ll enjoy making these funky chickens as much as I do.

    :!: Thinking of using felt in place of your feathers & making a comb, thus turning it into a rooster. My sister in law would love it. thanks for the instructions :thumbup:
