This week I have been sewing some little chicken blocks. I used the pattern from this old book "Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without". I have owned this book for a long time and still like all the patterns in it.
But these 4" chicken blocks were quite a challenge. Here are the 18 pieces cut out and ready to assemble.
Some of the pieces are just so tiny. In this photo I am sewing together pieces that are .75" x 1". This is precision sewing at it's best! There is no wiggle room here. There is not enough room to stretch or fudge a seam. You either cut and sew it right...
or you don't.
Here she is, hot off the presser. Her wing is sideways and there is no time for a wingectomy, so it's staying that way!
Good thing the weekend is here and there will be lots of time for sewing up chickens!
