    So glad to come across this tutorial. I have one of the chickens Doreen Speckman made - autographed no less. Thank you for giving her credit for first making these chickens. I think her daughter sold the pattern for a while after Doreen passed. She (Doreen) would have the biggest laugh at the "funky" chickens showing up everywhere! Can't wait to dig into my selvage stash and make up a couple of these.

    Thank you for sharing this tute!! I have a book by Sharlene Jorgenson that gives instructions to make these but I like your picture tutorial better!! It's much easier to understand how to go about it by looking at the photos rather than drawn illustrations.

    In Dec of 2000 a friend gave me a tiny one that had been made into a Christmas ornament. It was made with a narrow long cabin pattern, but I have been making crumb quilt squares and now I want to try one of these with crumbs. I really like how your selvage chicken looks!! I just measured the square that was used, for the Christmas ornament and it is 2 inches (finished size).

    I can always use more selvages. My dh thinks not, but what does he know about important things like that? :roll:

    This was a wonderful tut. Thanks so much. I will make one soon and post a picture. I think for those selvages that are cut too close for much else, this would be a great use for them. So greta of you to share and everyone's creations are great. I think my guild member friends might each get one for Christmas.

    just right click on each image and either save as a picture or copy into word and save.
