Folksy Fhursday – Chickens

April 22, 2010

This week has been all about chickens here. Starting last Friday when we became the proud owners of two chickens, I then spent most of this week making a load of chicken doorstops & paperweights for a craft fair on Saturday & watching our chickens free-ranging around the garden! So the only fitting theme for this week is, of course, chickens!

This chicken is called Sheila and you can get her from Righthand.

This Spring chicken bowl is made by Prince Design UK.

This Tall & Short Chick mini card has been hand drawn by Fosscards.

You can get yourself one of these chicken hairclips from Gingy Snapz.

I know this is a bit cheeky, but as this post was about chickens I felt it was only fair to sneak one of my own in! Daisy has now been sold but there should be plenty of chickens flocking to my shop any day now!

Today I made a chicken doorstop especially for my fiance’s mum who has just had her birthday. We are spending the weekend with her so tomorrow he will be travelling to Winchester.

As always she is made from reclaimed fabric and filled with pearl barley.

Make your own labels

January 13, 2009

I thought I would put up a link to the tutorial I found on making your own fabric labels.

As I had some T-shirt transfer paper lying around I made myself some:

I’m pretty pleased with them and I think they look pretty good attached to chicken bottoms!

Chicken paperweight

January 12, 2009

I’ve just finished my first paperweight which is basically a smaller version of my chicken doorstops. The idea is that all the people that tell me they love my doorstops but the dog would eat it, can now buy themselves a paperweight!

Apologies for the slightly crappy photo :s Now I need to make some more!
