Workshop notes

You need to make 2 scrap squares as follows:

Cut out a 1 ¾” square for the chicken head

And cut 1” strips from a variety of scraps for the logs of the log cabin design

You are going to work on just 2 side of the square (not all the way round which is more usual)

Sew maybe 4 rounds

Cut the last strip wider at say 1 ¼”

If nec essary trim the edges so that the patchwork is lovely and square.

You will need to add

An eye – maybe from felt or a button

Coxcomb for the head – again maybe from felt

Beak – again small triangle from felt

Place in relevant location on one square – making sure that they all lie so that you only have edges on edges.

Put 2nd square on top

Sew round LEAVING THE WHOLE OF ONE END OPEN

Turn right side out

Stuff

(adding rice or sand or other medium)

Add tail – sticking out!

Close up opening to make a humbug style shape.

NOTE:

You can change the sizes of the strips and the starting square and making them larger would give you a bigger chicken of course!

Scrap Pincushion or Doorstop

In this delightful little workshop Jennie shows you how to use up small strips of scrap to create a useful and attractive pincushion (but if the strips were bigger the chicken would be a brilliant doorstop).
