    Snippetts man haven't done that in awhile... you could have also put tulle over them & ironed them down with Misty Fuse on back of tulle... but it is so very cute the way you did it, leaving it free on the edge!!! I love it!!!.. your mama and baby are so very cute also... my sister would try and talk you out of them for her kitchen.....

    Great chicken, but I agree, I have to give you a lot of cudos for all it took to do that.

    Wow, how fun. I love chickens. Those are adorable. Is the chicken wire a print on the fabric or did you quilt it there???

    Never seen this before - what a great chicken you've made.
    I just looked at some examples of snippets work, and it is fascinating what people have done with it.
    Will have to have a go at this!

    These are so cute. :-D I was interested to read about the snippets technique - I did something similar on my 'Flying High' seagulll wallhanging but I cut the seagull shape from fusible wadding then ironed each tiny feather in place to hold temporarily while I FMQd the individual spines of each feather - your way seems more straightforward. I want to do a pheasant so maybe I'll try it. My way was a bit tricky as I had to adjust some of the feathers as I went with tweezers. Your feathers look like the edges ruffle up, which is the effect I wanted with my seagull and why I only FMQd the spine of each feather - did you achieve this by not ironing right to the edge? Strange that I just did this and had no idea I was using an existing 'technique' :lol: Nothing new under the sun, is there? :D

    Those are really neat! I've never seen anything like them before.

    Will you share a little about how they are made? Thanks!

    My mother loved chickens. She grew up in VA during the Depression, on a farm. I have inherited her love for them, also. Mother always liked to see the new born horses and calves in the spring. She is gone now. Love your chickens.

    I love them all...but I, too, have an addiction to chickens..lol!

    That snippets technique looks interesting, but very time consuming. How long did it take you to make the chicken???

    Once I figured out how the technique and how I was going to use it to make a chicken, of all things, it didn't take long at all - maybe an hour and a half with the snipping and ironing.
