funky chicken pin cushion I haven’t mentioned it for a while, but the hunt for the perfect pin cushion continues… to go to the birds…

Web-Goddess gives a nice clear set of free illustrated instructions for sewing up a set of funky chicken pincushions, and they do have a certain appeal.

log cabin patchwork chickenA traditional take on the same basic idea has the chicken made up of log cabin quilt squares. You can find a free pattern for the log cabin chicken pincushion at Quilting Works, or get it ready-made by lanningslee on Etsy.

Either way… a great project to use up scraps of fabric… and, hey! a perfect “impulse item” to make for a fund-raiser bazaar or craft sale.

    So cute. As soon as I saw this photo I thought, these would be nice baby toys. Ok, with some modifications to the embellishments for safety sake. But I think tiny hands could grasp a corner easily, and it could go into a mouth for a bit of tactile exploration with no harm done. Washable. So cute…
