    I've made one from another pattern, but the log cabin one looks cute.

    The patterns for the beak and comb are on the website that was posted. Just click below the photo, where it says "Patterns and Instructions". I have my little chickie all cut out and ready to sew - tonight hopefully! Mine will not be a log cabin, just a single-fabric chicken!

    I have made the chicken pincushions. I made mine 3 1/2 inch squares. The one I got as a gift I took apart and measured. That way I could see which seams to sew to make it in a triangle. Add comb and beak before sewing seam then add beads for the eyes before sewing the last seam It is a lot easier than trying to get your fingers and a needle to get them one I hope this helps. I don't have a picture that I can send on the computer but could send one by snail mail

    I have also made these chickens, got the pattern from a friend. I filled my with synthetic pellets, added some crushed cinnamon stick and cloves. Put them in my pantry cupboard as a scent sachet, would work for other closets as well.

    I avoid using rice or grains in things, just so they can't be eaten by anything!!!

    I put plastic rounds that are used for filling dolls and other crafty things. It comes in a 2 lb. bag and I got mine at Joann's I like it better than the rice.

    Thank you for that tip, I thought all I was getting was the instructions, didn't know to click on "Pattern and Instructions"

    Cluck cluck! Here's my little guy. Since I didn't have any craft pellets or white rice to fill him with, he's got a couple of rocks in his butt to give him weight, along with the fiberfill stuffing. Whatever works, right? We quilters are very inventive folks. (By the way, the squares are printed on this fabric; it's not pieced.)

    DonnaC Thanks for idea of rocks on the bottom. makes him a little sturdy to sit. Wondering if play sand would be good to fill him up. That also would make him a little heavier.

    thank you so very much for the offer to send a pic snail mail, but I finally got one made! I was turning it inside out to early and that was where my problem was. Thanks again to all the offers of help. :) :) :)

    I hadn't either, but I just went into Recent Topics, and it looks like the same newsletter entries we get.
