LITTLE BIG BEAK - A Chicken Pincushion
With such a BIG mouth, I think this chick will be named "Little Big Beak."
This little guy [girl??] was quick and fun to make. Just took three Charm Squares and a couple inches of rick-rack. First, baste the comb/beak onto two adjoining edges of a Charm Square. I double folded the yellow for the beak.
Fold one, two or three, small squares [I used three 2.5"] into Prarie Points. Note how the third one is folded slightly different. Was hoping this would 'fluff' his tail somewhat, and it would have had I not sewn it in upside down. lol
This little chick still needs a couple of beads sewn on for eyes, and maybe some dangling feet - we are still discussing that! lol. There are many different ways to approach making this kind of pincushion. For lots of great info, an easy method, and a great tutorial hop on over to: Riley Blake Designs. Go look. Lot's of fun eye-candy. They have loads of pincushion ideas. Too cute!
That's it for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Until next time. . .
